**UPDATE: The suspects have been apprehended.
North Haven Police Officers responded to the Ulta Store at 370 Universal Drive North at 8:00 p.m. on Monday June 9th, 2014 after employees reported a theft in progress. Employees of the cosmetics store reported witnessing a male and female taking fragrances and concealing them in a bag the female was carrying.

The first three characters of the plate read “1AG.” An Officer spotted the pair in the vehicle and approached them. The driver accelerated towards the officer striking him as he attempted to jump out of the way of the fleeing BMW. The officer was transported to an area hospital for his non-life threatening injuries. The vehicle fled the area and was last seen traveling south on Interstate 91 and exiting at the Willow Street Exit #6.
