A would-be shoplifter added assault to his charges after he was confronted by store security.
Police say that a 31-year-old man took product from a store on the 900-block of Victoria Avenue and left without paying. When he was confronted by store security outside, he assaulted the store employee and ran off. The store employee suffered a minor injury to his upper body.
Officers found the suspect nearby and arrested him. He has since been released from custody and is to appear in court on June 26.
