CHESTERFIELD, MO (KPLR) – Chesterfield police are investigating what they call a strong-armed robbery at a store at the St. Louis Premium Outlet mall Saturday night.  Three black females grabbed a large quantity of high end purses from the Kate Spade store and ran out.

As they left, they knocked over an 11-year-old boy who was entering the store with his mother.  He suffered bumps and bruises but will be fine according to police.

On Sunday morning, Chesterfield updated their search information and said the women fled in a Chevy Malibu with Pennsylvania license plates. At one point were pursued by another police department eastbound on I-64/40.  When the car reached speeds over 100 miles an hour approaching Hanley Road, the pursuit was called off.
