Shoplifting Suspect Bites Target Security Officer On The Arm



Retail security officers, maybe you should consider a series of rabies shots. A few weeks ago, we shared the story of an alleged Macy’s shoplifter who chomped on a police officer who showed up to intervene. Now police in the Denver suburb of Aurora are looking for a woman who was suspected of shoplifting, and chomped on the forearm of a Target employee while making her escape.

One evening back in June, officers stopped the woman on suspicion of shoplifting, but she resisted arrest. Police say that she bit a security officer on the forearm, ran out of the store with a set of handcuffs attached to one wrist, and drove off in a black vehicle that had its license plates removed. You can see a surveillance video picture of her on the KDVR website.

The incident in Colorado happened at the end of June, the day before the similar incident at a California Macy’s. If we were TV writers, this is probably how we would begin the spread of a zombie virus.
