HOOKSETT, N.H. (WHDH) - A New Hampshire man is facing criminal charges after Hooksett police say he pulled a knife on a Kohl’s employee who caught him stealing sneakers on Wednesday.
Officers responding to a reported shoplifting at the local Kohl’s spoke with a worker in the parking lot who said a shoplifter just pulled a knife on her when she tried to stop him from stealing from the store, police said.
After providing police with a description of the suspect, police arrested Zachary Labrecque, 31, of Berlin, on charges of criminal threatening with a deadly weapon, theft by unauthorized taking, operating after suspension.
He was released on public recognizance and is slated to be arraigned Dec. 5 in Merrimack County Superior Court.
