Cops cuffed a guy on July 15 who they say stole thousands of dollars worth of cosmetics from a store on Smith Street and threatened someone in the store with a needle after saying he had HIV on July 12.
The 30-year-old suspect stuffed his pockets with $2,257 worth of cosmetics, and when someone in the store between Warren and Baltic streets tried to stop him, the two got into a fight and the suspect displayed the needle, according to authorities.
But the guy left without hurting anyone and police arrested him three days later, officials said.
