Security Guard Injured by Fleeing Suspect’s Carjacking

A security guard who attempted to stop a person involved in a retail theft Sunday in the parking lot of the Sandy Hollow Road Kmart store, in Rockville, Illinois, became a victim of carjacking. The incident occurred about 3:50 p.m. Police said the security officer attempted to stop a retail theft suspect in the parking lot. A struggle ensued and the suspect was able to get in the driver’s seat of the security guard’s vehicle. The security guard and a bystander attempted to pull the suspect out of the vehicle, but the suspect began to drive forward, dragging the security officer and bystander. The guard and bystander fell, and the vehicle fled the scene. The vehicle is described as a white four-door Ford, with an “Allied Security Services” decal on the front doors. The vehicle also had a clear light bar mounted on top. The security guard and the bystander were transported to local hospital for serious, but not life-threatening injuries, police said. Anyone with information about the case is asked to call the Rockford Police Department at 815-966-2900 or Rockford Area Crime Stoppers at 815-963-7867.  [Source: rrstar]
