No other information was released. 


The Roseville Police Department is asking for the public's help in finding two suspects involved in a robbery at a retail store in the city.

Authorities said it happened at about 6 p.m. Friday at Famous Footwear in HarMar Mall.

When the suspects tried to walk out with shoes, an employee tried to stop them but the two sprayed the employee with a chemical, police said. The employee had symptoms consistent with being sprayed with mace, but is otherwise fine.

If anyone has any information regarding the event, they are asked to call 651-792-7008. Police later said they appreciated the public's help identifying the two, but are still working to identify the person in the black and blue coat.
