CrimeStoppers asked for the public's help identifying a thief caught in the act at the Prattville TJ Maxx store, and the public responded... FAST. 

Within two minutes of WSFA 12 News airing surveillance video of a woman caught on camera stealing baby clothes, authorities had calls come in to identify her.

The woman was confronted by a store loss prevention employee after leaving the store on June 19, 2013.

Police say the woman left the store without paying for the items she'd taken and when a member of the loss prevention team approached her, she attacked the man. Authorities say she knocked him to the ground twice before getting into an unknown type of vehicle.

While authorities have not released the woman's name publicly, they say they're now prepared to send her case to a grand jury. That will take place in September.

The woman is charged with Robbery 3rd and Theft of Property.
