Shoplifter twists security agent’s testicles www.privateofficer.com
According to police, 30-year-old Robin Roberts stole several items from the store in the 2900 block of West Wheatland Road in Dallas, near Interstate 20. When stopped by a security guard as she tried to leave the location, the Bridgeport resident attacked, police said.
“She immediately pushed him with both hands in an attempt to flee from him,” according to a police report.
The suspect and the guard then fell to the floor and began tussling. During the fight, an unidentified man drove up to the store and also attacked the guard, before fleeing, police said.
That’s when, police said, Roberts grabbed and twisted the guard’s testicles. The injured man backed away from Roberts, who then pulled a pocket knife, according to investigators.
The guard was able to disarm Roberts, they said.
However, the second suspect returned and tried to get the stolen merchandise from the guard, police said. He was unsuccessful.
The guard then cuffed Roberts, who continued struggling, police said.
Dallas-Fire Rescue was then called to the scene to treat Roberts for an asthma attack, police said.
Roberts was arrested and was initially charged with aggravated robbery for the May 24 incident. But police have now downgraded the charge to robbery. It was not clear why.
Roberts was being held Wednesday on a $200,000 bond.
Police records show she has a criminal history that includes robbery and theft.
