Brookfield Police looking for shoplifting suspect who assaulted a security guard
The Brookfield Police are looking for a man in his 40s who assaulted a Loss Prevention Officer attempting to prevent a shoplifting incident. The incident happened at the Pick ‘n Save store on Capitol Drive near 124th Street around 2:30 PM Thursday. According to the Police report, a man in his 40s wearing a grey sweatshirt with grey sweatpants, white shoes and a black “weight lifting belt” was caught stealing about $105 worth of razor blades. When confronted by the store’s Loss Prevention Officer, the suspect discarded the blades and tried to leave the store. When the Loss Prevention Officer followed the man, he struck the officer in the face and fled. The man, described as a black male, about 6-feet tall, 200 pounds, balding with short grey hair and stubby grey beard, was last seen getting into a silver or gold Chevy of Buick driven by a heavy set woman in her 30s wearing a purple or pink head wrap. Anyone with information about the two individuals are asked to contact the Brookfield Police Department.
