Woman allegedly bites store employeeDecember 08,2015
A New York woman allegedly bit a TJ Maxx employee’s thumb after he tried to retrieve the underwear she had stolen from the Rutland store.
Candace M. Alberti, 33, of White Plains N.Y., was initially scheduled to be arraigned on the two misdemeanor charges of retail theft and simple assault Monday, but her hearing was moved to Dec. 14.
TJ Maxx loss-prevention officer Richard Durham, 46, told Rutland police Alberti kicked him, slapped the glasses off his face and bit his left thumb outside the store when he took hold of the purse into which he had seen her place unpaid merchandise.
The $21.50 in underwear Alberti stole was retrieved when the two women shopping with Alberti intervened to prevent her from hitting him again and took the merchandise out of her bag, Durham said.
If convicted, Alberti faces a maximum of one and half years in prison and $1,500 in fines.MORE IN This Just In
