Md. police look into death inside upscale shop

Police say a woman employee at an upscale athletic apparel store in Bethesda has been killed and another woman worker was sexually assaulted after they were attacked during a robbery attempt.

Police said Saturday the woman who survived is talking to detectives. Montgomery County police spokesman Capt. Paul Starks says two masked men in gloves entered the Lululemon Athletica shop Friday night about the time it was closing.

The women were found Saturday morning before the store opened.

Police cordoned off the shop, which sells athletic clothing and yoga apparel, with yellow tape and placed brown paper in the windows to block the view.

The store is in a busy shopping district in a suburban Washington neighborhood.
