Old Navy employee bitten by shoplifting suspect in Delaware
WILMINGTON, Del. (AP) — Police say a woman bit a store employee as she and two others fled a Delaware Old Navy with stolen merchandise.
A Delaware State Police release cited by news outlets say the employee tried to stop two women and one man from shoplifting Wednesday, but was unheeded. A physical altercation ensued as the suspects tried to push past, and the employee was knocked to the ground and bitten on the forehead.
