ELYRIA OH April 1 2012 — An Elyria man was arrested for robbery after he attacked Target loss prevention workers who tried to detain him, according to a police report.
Terry L. Hines, 25, tried to leave the Elyria store with $173.95 worth of DVDs he didn’t pay for Sunday afternoon, the report said.
Loss prevention officer Brandon Sprague told police he approached Hines in the exit vestibule, and Hines kicked him in the groin. Sprague said that Hines was then kicking him in the left leg.
Loss prevention officer Cristee Brianas tried to assist, injuring her hands.
Frank Trampush, an off-duty North Ridgeville police officer who was leaving the store, saw the struggle and helped the pair take Hines to the ground, the report said.
Hines was found to have warrants from Avon Lake and Ottawa County.
Officers took photos of Sprague and Brianas’ injuries. Trampush said he was not injured.
Hines remains in the Lorain County Jail.
