According to investigators, she struck the male victim in the head with a blunt object.
Then she was gone, taking off out of the store. The store employee, still in a daze after the blow to the head, couldn’t pursue her.
“She has a history of shoplifting, especially at that store,” said Broadwater.
Court records show recent retail theft arrests as well as a number of harassment charges against the 31-year-old.
Now since the COVID-19 pandemic, there have been a few food thefts in area stores, but this wasn’t. Troopers say this theft and assault were out of desperation.
“During a situation like the whole world is facing, it’s kinda despicable you’re gonna do something like that,” Broadwater said. “She’s offended before it’s not gonna be the last time she does it either.”MORE NEWS: City Of Washington Police Chief Says He Wants Body Cameras Before A Review Board
