Police are asking for the public’s assistance in identifying two suspects following a theft at the Marshall’s in Dartmouth Crossing and an assault where a citizen tried to intervene.
At 5:44 p.m. on December 6, police received a call to the Marshall’s at 75 Countryview Drive. A loss prevention office followed two men out of the store with a full shopping cart each, and neither made any attempt to pay for these items. A man and woman were parking their car when they noted the one of the suspects parked directly beside them quickly putting items in the trunk of his car. They then noted the loss prevention officer following the other suspect in the direction of the car. The man tried to see the license plate on the suspect vehicle but was pushed away by the suspect who had been putting items in the trunk of the car. When the other suspect approached the car with the loss prevention officer following him, the man tried to intervene and was told by this suspect to get out of the way and then showed him a knife. During this, the other suspect pushed the man to the ground and the suspects got into their vehicle and fled the area.
