The suspect had entered the store, and was immediately told to leave by staff. The suspect refused, asked the clerk if he wanted a haircut, and then displayed a pair of scissors in her hand. The clerk refused her, and she then asked if he wanted a mint. When the clerk refused again, she told him she wanted cigarettes and all the money in the register. The clerk refused, and told the suspect he would call the police. The suspect then stole a rose from the counter and left. Officers encountered the suspect crossing West Broadway Boulevard near South Ohio Avenue. Officers could see she had the pair of scissors in her hand. The suspect was ordered to drop the scissors, but refused. She then snapped the scissors at the Officer as she swung her arm. The suspect was then placed on the ground and restrained.
