GREENVILLE, SC (FOX Carolina) -
The woman who police said stole $1,500 in dresses from a South Carolina Dillard's then hit a clerk with her car in the getaway has been arrested in Illinois.
Greenville police spokesperson Johnathan Bragg said Rosa Aguilera was arrested Thursday morning by U.S. Marshals in Elgin, IL. She was wanted since late February.
On Feb. 23, police said a Dillard's employee saw Aguilera put the clothes in a Belk's bag then leave without paying. The employee ran after her into the parking garage and when he spotted Aguilera, he waved at her to stop but she accelerated towards him, hitting the employee in the leg with her car, according to her arrest warrants.
Police said the victim was thrown onto the hood of the car and Aguilera was able to get away.
Because of the circumstances, Bragg said the shoplifting charge was upgraded to armed robbery. She was also wanted an on attempted murder charge.
Police said the U.S. Marshal's task force located Aguilera in Elgin and arrested her with the help of Greenville City and County officers. There is no word yet when she will be brought back to the Upstate.
