Women, kids pepper-sprayed during dust-up at Sacramento-area mall


Police say a total of seven people were treated after a pepper-spray incident at the Westfield Galleria in Roseville, Calif., Sunday afternoon.

One mom and twin 3-year-olds were taken to Kaiser Hospital Roseville, while one mall employee was taken to Sutter Hospital. The Sacramento Bee reported that the incident occurred at the Children’s Place store. Another report said it took place at the mall’s play area.

Three more people were treated at the scene, including two women and one infant.


The incident looks to have stemmed from a fight between two women, police say. After the pepper spray was released, the women hid in separate parts of the mall before being found by police.

Police say that no arrests have been made due to conflicting statements.
