Tennessee shoppers catch Nashville Perfumania burglars in a store

A group of bystanders outside a store in Tennessee tried to keep a group of suspected burglars inside until police arrived, according to a social media video of the incident.

Shoppers at Tanger Outlets in Nashville’s Antioch neighborhood captured video of four alleged burglars wearing hoodies and medical face masks trapped inside a Perfumania store.

Shoppers stood outside the store and kept the front door closed, trapping the suspects inside.

Video shows the alleged burglars trying to break open the back door with a kick in an attempt to escape. When they fail to break open the door, the video shows them starting to break open the wall next to the back door with the stairs.

The video ends abruptly as the suspects remain in the store.

The group of bystanders told WSMV-TV they kept the front door closed until Metro Nashville police arrived 30 minutes later.

Witnesses told the store that the suspects had already escaped through the back of the store when officers arrived.

One witness at the station described how the alleged burglary unfolded before workers and shoppers ran from the store.

“(They tried) to run through the store, break into the cash register, break through the glass, take all the cologne off the shelves and stuff,” a witness named Preston told WSMV-TV about the alleged burglars .

Preston said mall security told him the suspects jumped a fence after breaking out of the back of the store and running toward Interstate 24.

“The other people seemed very upset about it because they live nearby,” Preston told WSMV. They’re just angry that it happens so often.”
