Citizens Help Capture Rochester Shoplifting Suspect
Rochester, MN (KROC AM News) - Two citizens helped take down a shoplifting suspect at Apache Mall Friday afternoon.
Police Captain John Sherwin says the two grabbed and held the man as he was being pursued by a city police officer in the food court area.
The thief - 19-year-old Dylan Sutter of Rochester - was caught stealing ammunition from Scheels and an employee reported it to the officer, who was working security at the mall. When the officer tried to arrest Sutter, he began fighting and then ran through a store and into the food court where the two citizens grabbed him.
Sutter is facing several criminal charges.
