EL PASO TX July 20 2010 — A suspected shoplifter was arrested after she allegedly escaped last month by biting a security guard in the forearm while he was trying to hold onto her car in the parking lot of the Sam’s Club store near Cielo Vista Mall, El Paso police said.
Detectives arrested Ana Karina Zubiate, 29, on July 3 on warrants for aggravated robbery and endangering a child.
On June 4, Zubiate, according to police, tried to steal computer software and ink from the Sam’s Club but tossed the items when confronted by security in the parking lot. Zubiate allegedly got into a Dodge Neon, bit the guard and drove away with the rear door open and four children in the back seat. A bystander closed the door to keep the kids from falling out, police said.
Zubiate, of the 100 block of Durrill, remained jailed Sunday under bonds totalling $60,000.
