TAMPA, Fla. – The Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office is working to identify two young women who pepper-sprayed an elderly woman in Tampa.

On July 11, 2020, the two female suspects used a water gun to pepper spray a victim at a Marathon convenience store, located at 7105 Temple Terrace Highway. About thirty minutes later, suspects matching the same description battered an elderly female, less than a quarter-mile from the first incident, using the same harmful liquid.

The suspects fled the scene in a gray Honda Odyssey.

“The actions of these two suspects are despicable and will not be tolerated,” said Sheriff Chad Chronister. “They could have caused serious injury to the victims. Our detectives are working are to identify these suspects and hold them accountable.”

Anyone with information on their identity is asked to call the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office at (813) 247-8200.
