A Grandview teen elbowed his way out of Wal-Mart in Sunnyside and into a heap of trouble this past weekend.
The teen, caught shoplifting, was being detained by Wal-Mart managers while police were on their way, according to Capt. Phil Schenck of the Sunnyside Police Department.
When the officers arrived, the 15-year-old male shoved the assistant manager of Wal-Mart and elbowed a Sunnyside police officer in the face while attempting to flee. The officer also fell and scraped his knee in pursuit of the teen.
A citizen in the parking lot of the store attempted to stop the suspect, but it was police officers who ultimately apprehended the teen.
The teen is charged with stealing a portable CD player, according to Schenck.
He is now being charged with first degree robbery, two counts of fourth degree assault, second degree assault and resisting arrest.
