A 21-year-old woman was arrested for shoplifting from a store in Kings Plaza on Avenue U on Oct. 7 — and attacking guards who tried to stop her.
A security guard told police that he was inside the store between E. 54th and E. 55th streets at 3 pm when he saw the suspect grab three pants and five shirts and stuff them into her purse.
When the witness and another security guard attempted to prevent the suspect from leaving, she bit one of the men and punched the other in the face, police said.
