GRANDVIEW, MO (KCTV) -

Authorities in Grandview are asking for help as they search for three women in connection with a robbery and an attempted robbery.

The incidents happened about 4:45 p.m. on June 27, in the parking lots of businesses in the 12300 and 12000 blocks of Interstate 49.

The women were believed to be watching victims in the parking lot and then quickly approaching them as the victims entered their cars.

During the robbery, one of the women approached a driver as she entered her car and pepper sprayed her while a second woman opened the passenger side door and stole the victim’s purse.

When the women attempted to rob a second person, the victim was able to lock her doors and prevent the women from pepper spraying her or entering her vehicle. 

The suspects left the area in a 2006 to 2010 Silver Chevrolet Impala four-door, believed to be driven by a third female suspect.

Two of the suspects are shown in a surveillance photograph and are believed to be black women in their late teens to early 20’s.

Sharon Hall was one of the victims. 

She had two momentous occasions to celebrate: her retirement after teaching for 40 years and her 25th wedding anniversary.

She had gone inside the CVS to pick up an anniversary card.

Then, as she was signing her anniversary card inside her car, she was pepper sprayed while another suspect opened her passenger side door and took off with her purse. 

"It was more painful than anything I could remember," she said. 

She said they immediately started using various stolen debit and credit cards at gas stations and beauty supply stores. 

"My hope is that they're caught," she said. "I don't want anyone else's mother, grandmother, sister to be put in a position that I was." 

Still, Hall has a positive outlook on life. "They're not going to steal my joy," she said. 

Anyone with information about the crimes or the suspects is asked to call the TIPS Hotline (816) 474-TIPS.

Police warn shoppers to be alert and watch their surroundings.
