Officers were called to a business in the 3000-block of Blanshard Street shortly after 6 p.m. on March 8 for a report a man had assaulted a staff member and smashed a glass door. Upon arriving, officers learned the suspect had stolen items from the store and, when confronted, assaulted a staff member leaving them with non-life-threatening injuries.
