The fight all started over a single hat, according to investigators. It happened around 11 a.m. on Nov. 18.

One of the women allegedly hit a hat inside a bag and then walked out of the store without paying for it, even refusing to return the item when asked.

Police said one suspect has green hair and was last seen wearing a light colored hooded sweater and black winter coat. The other was last spotted with a black hat and yellow coat.
