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.”

The security guard was taken to hospital with serious, but not life-threatening, injuries.
