guard recovering after Black Friday assault

MADISON (AP) – Madison police say two Black Friday shoppers attacked a security guard at J.C.

Penney after he accused them of shoplifting, leaving the guard with a cut near his ear.

A WMTV-TV report1 Monday says two women and a 14-year-old girl were arrested, and another woman was cited.

The 24-year-old guard told police the women were placing stolen items in a stroller, beneath a baby.

He says when he asked them to stop, a 22-year-old Sun Prairie woman and the 14-year-old punched and kicked him, while a 24-year-old Reedsburg woman yelled that she was going to kill him.

The 14-year-old later told an officer she has “anger problems.”

Police say clothes and other stolen items were found beneath the baby.

A 23-year-old Sun Prairie woman was cited for retail theft.
