Cambridge Police report on four recent incidents at CambridgeSide Galleria:
On Friday morning, an employee of the Old Navy Store allegedly took a customer's debit card and used it to buy a cell phone at the Mobile Solution Store. The customer caught up with the employee at the Lechmere T stop and confronted her. The woman gave the card back, but when the victim demanded to know about the unauthorized purchase, the clerk "struck the victim in the chest area." She then fled, leaving the cell phone behind.
On Saturday afternoon, a Boston resident told police a woman managed to get her credit-card information at the Sephora store, then left.
On Sunday afternoon, a clerk at an unidentified second-floor store allegedly slapped a customer when she didn't move out of his way fast enough for him:
The victim was shopping with her two children and had a visible red mark on her right cheek. The suspect admitted that he struck the victim and felt he did nothing wrong because he told her to move. The suspect was informed that he would receive a summons in the mail.
Also Sunday afternoon: A woman trying on clothes at Aeropostale reported somebody stole her handbag from the dressing room.
