Alleged Kohl's Shoplifter Threatens Guard With Hypodermic Needle

An alleged robber of a Connecticut Kohl’s threatened to get stabby with a security guard who confronted him. Threatening someone with a needle is disturbing stuff, but not as dangerous as the gun the man claimed to have had earlier.

Bringing back memories of last year’s Kohl’s dressing room syringe stabbing incident, the foiled needling has stuck the perpetrator with robbery charges.

A note to retail store owners: Never hire me as a security guard, because any thief — needle or not — is getting away without a chase as I stare at my shoelaces.
