SAN ANTONIO – A woman has been charged with aggravated robbery.

San Antonio police said she stole perfume and makeup from the J.C. Penney store at South Park Mall.

Investigators said Tiffany Tapia, 20, left the store with those items on April 9.

A loss-prevention officer tried to stop Tapia when a man in a car pulled up and pointed a gun at the officer. 

Police also stated that the man threatened to kill the officer.

The employee went back inside the store and the man and woman drove away.

Tapia was identified in a photo lineup last week.
