ROSS TOWNSHIP, Pa. - A security guard from Ross Park Mall is recovering after she was allegedly bitten and choked by a shoplifter trying to make a run for it.
Police said Jamie Hinton, 22, did not go to jail without a fight.
“Generally, if it had been just a retail theft, they would have been released from the scene,” said Brian Kohlhep of Ross Township police.
Police said Hinton and her mother, Shelby Rose, were seen by security stuffing clothing inside a bag.
When Hinton left the store and realized she was being followed, she took off and two security guards chased her down, police said.
That’s when one of the guards was allegedly bitten.
Police said both women have a history of shoplifting.
