Vancouver Sun–21 hours ago
A security guard attempting to thwart a shoplifter was stabbed at a Walmart in North Delta on Saturday.
Delta police said in a news release that the guard confronted the shoplifter at the Walmart Delta Supercentre at 7155 120th St, around 12:30 p.m. The shoplifter stabbed the guard and fled southbound.
Police used a police dog in their search. They quickly found a man meeting the attacker’s description a few blocks away and arrested him.
The man who was arrested is in his mid-20s, has no fixed address and was known to police.
“He’s got quite a history,” said Delta’s police spokesperson, Sharlene Brooks. “At this point the charges that the police will be recommending are robbery and breach of conditions.”
