C-Store Clerk Stabbed by Shoplifter

In South Dakota, Sioux Falls police say a 21-year-old woman stabbed a convenience store employee after he confronted her about shoplifting frozen chicken. Authorities say the woman, who is a transient, tried to shoplift some frozen chicken and the employee confronted her outside and took back the box of chicken.

Police say the woman then stabbed the employee in the shoulder with a knife. A South Dakota Highway Patrol trooper later found the woman. When a police officer arrived to help the trooper, authorities say the suspect threatened both of them with a knife. The trooper used a stun gun on the suspect, who was arrested. The victim was taken to a hospital, where he was treated and released. The woman is jailed facing charges of aggravated assault and shoplifting.   [Source: US News]
