    GWINNETT COUNTY, Ga. - Police are searching for two men who beat and shove a woman to the floor inside a popular department store in Gwinnett County. 

    The victim told police that the men threw a blanket over her head and then attacked her inside the Ross Department store on Stone Mountain Highway.

    Dina Bingham said she was shopping on May 12 when she felt a blanket over her head. She said two men started shaking her and shoving her around.

    Gwinnett police released a surveillance photo of the two suspects, with one carrying a blanket they used in the alleged attack. 

    Bingham said she fought back and forced the men to run out of the store.

    "I can't get into the mind of a criminal, I don't know but what I do know is the store could have handled it differently,” Bingham said.
