A shoplifting scene earlier this month at Rite Aid in Clawson quickly devolved into violence and destruction and a pair of women were arrested.
Witnesses to the scene on Aug. 9 just before 12 noon told police that Takeisha Monique Mays, 26, of Toledo, and Nadia Monique McDonald, 30, of Flint, sent off an alarm after trying to leave the store with a box of condoms concealed in a purse.
A manager at the store, a 32-year-old man, suffered a minor cut in the ensuing confrontation, even after he said that if the women gave the stolen merchandise back that he would not call the police, according to reports.
Mays allegedly hit the manager and knocked five bottles of liquor from a shelf before speeding off with McDonald eastbound on 14 Mile Road.
The pair were pulled over and arrested—McDonald for theft and Mays for assault and battery in addition to driving without a valid license.
McDonald was later arraigned, given a $1,250 personal recognizance bond and released. Mays stood mute at her arraignment and given a $10,000 cash/surety bond with no 10 percent provision.
