Shoplifting suspect hits security, flees

The Cincinnati Enquirer

        ANDERSON TOWNSHIP — Two loss prevention officers were assaulted Thursday when they attempted to detain a shoplifting suspect at the Lazarus department store in Anderson Township.

        The suspect picked up a metal box in the security office and hit the two loss prevention employees before he fled the store at 7500 Beechmont Ave., the Hamilton County Sheriff's Office said.

        The man, described as black, 5-foot-10, 250 pounds, with black hair and wearing dark pants and a white, striped short-sleeve shirt, stated he had a firearm but did not display one.

        The two store employees were treated for minor injuries at Mercy Hospital Anderson and released.
