Woman sought in mall pepper spray attack

Posted: Updated:
MADISON (WKOW) -- A woman is being sought on a felony arrest warrant in connection to a pepper spray attack on a loss prevention officer at Madison's West Towne Mall.

A criminal complaint against 32-year old Danielle Goree states she sprayed the man in the face, after authorities say she stole items from a department store in March, 2011.

Criminal documents state Goree is also a suspect in the pepper spraying of another department store employee at West Towne in September, 2010, after authorities say store merchandise was stolen.

Deputy Dane County district attorney Michelle Viste says she's unaware of any connection between Goree and three, recent armed robberies involving a suspect with chemical spray.

Viste says Goree was charged more than three years after the crime, as part of an effort to clear a backlog of cases in the district attorney's office.
