Employee bitten by shoplifter

An Old Navy employee was bitten Saturday by a teenager attempting to shoplift clothes from the store, police said.

A Richmond County sheriff’s report said that a woman and a teenage girl entered the store at 219 Robert C. Daniel Jr. Parkway about 6 p.m. and began putting children’s clothing into their pocketbooks. When the women tried to leave the store without paying for the items, an employee confronted them. The teenager got into an altercation with the employee and bit him on the right arm, causing him to bleed. The woman threatened to spray the employee with Mace, the report said.

The pair dropped two shirts and a pair of blue jeans as they left the store. They fled in a white SUV, according to the report.

The teen is described as black, 16 to 18 years old, about 5 feet tall and weighing about 135 pounds. She was wearing a white shirt, blue jeans and white shoes and had black, wavy hair with reddish highlights in a ponytail.

The woman is described as black, 20 to 25 years old, about 5 feet 7 inches tall and weighing about 130 pounds.
