MADISON (WKOW) — Police say a shoplifter bit a security guard and scratched him in the eye at Hilldale Mall Thursday evening.

According to an incident report, a Macy’s store security officer saw a 17-year-old and two other women stuffing bags with more than $1,100 worth of merchandise, before leaving without paying.

Police say when the guard contacted the suspect she told him, “You can’t touch me and if you touch me I’ll mace you.”

When the security guard did try to detain the suspect, she bit him on the arm and scratched him in the eye.

The primary suspect was arrested for battery and felony retail theft. The other two ran away before officers arrived.
