Shoplifter escapes threatening staff and public with broken bottle

1 min read

Yesterday afternoon a man escaped being put under civilian arrest in the Causewayhead Co-op. Standing approximately 6ft tall and in his 30s, he wielded a broken wine bottle at members of staff and members of the public.

The man in question was accused by a member of staff in the store that he was shoplifting as he made for the entrance with items unpaid for from the alcohol sales part of the shop.

Being pinned down by staff and members of the public, the man became very violent. After smashing bottles and breaking free of the grip on him the man then threatened members of both staff and public as he made his way out the store and onto the main road in escape of the event.

The Police were informed and made their way to the store where they clearly identified the man on CCTV.

Hi, I am Sherman Wright 47yo. I am from Ballymena Co Antrim in the North of Ireland. I am currently a 3rd Year Bachelor of Arts (Joint Hons) Film, Media and Journalism student at the great University of Stirling in Scotland. I simply enjoy writing about sport and non-fiction which I have been studying very hard this year during the Magazine Journalism module of my joint honours degree. Having studied Ernest Hemingway, Gay Talese, Truman Capote, Jack Kerouac, Joan Didion and their fantastic style of writing, I am totally inspired by their inspirational creativity. I have become so amused by this genius form of descriptive art that I literally write about a trip on the bus into town just to see if I can gain that stimulus required to be able to say "I am really happy with that and my writing is getting better." The feeling I get from trying to write a better story, by way of format, than my last scribe, is something that I need ......... I need that personal victory. I aspire to better my writing and that for me means everything. One day I will write an autobiography, and it will sell. Once upon a time in Ballymena.
