LITTLE ROCK (KATV) — A security guard at a Little Rock grocery store smacked a shoplifter with a piece of raw meat after she pulled a knife on him Sunday, police reported.
Officers were called at 4:02 p.m. to Shoppers Value Foods at 6800 Colonel Glenn Road. A security guard, Anthony Smith, 42, said he’d confronted a woman suspected of filling her empty purse with about $50 in raw meat, according to a police report. The woman punched him in the face and ran outside.
Smith reportedly chased the woman into the parking lot, where he grabbed her purse and she pulled out a large pocket knife. He then hit the woman with a piece of meat that had been in her purse. The woman dropped the knife and ran east on Colonel Glenn Road.
No injuries were reported.
Officers searched the area but made no arrests.
The woman is described as black, about 5-feet-10 and 160 pounds. She wore a gray hoodie, black pants and an auburn-colored wig.
