- Sept. 2: A 19-year-old shoplifting suspect pummeled a McLendon's employee working security before running off.
The suspect had placed a Kwikset deadbolt down his pants and walked past the cashier without paying the $15.99 plus tax for the item. When confronted by security, the suspect dropped the lock and walked away. Security attempted to detain the suspect who then punched the 30-year-old Lynnwood in the face and kicked him when he fell to his knees.
The victim suffered a cut lip, bloody nose, bruises, swelling to the face and was transported to Evergreen Hospital. Still, the man was able to detain a witness associated with the suspect for police.
