Police are searching for a group of about 10 people who allegedly used force to take at least $10,000 worth of merchandise from a high-end store in San Francisco's Union Square.
At 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, the male and female suspects entered Salvatore Ferragamo, an Italian luxury goods store located at 236 Post Street. The group started grabbing purses and belts and attempted to leave the store without paying for the merchandise.
Police said a store employee tried to stop the group from leaving, but the suspects fought with the employee and got away.
"The suspects used force to complete the theft and fled the scene," police said in a release.
Investigators are reviewing video surveillance and a hand print at one of the store's doors to try and identify the suspects.
No other information was immediately available.
