Dover Woman Assaults Target Employee During Shoplifting

Dover Police arrested a Dover woman after she shoplifted clothing and assaulted a Target employee.

Police say they responded to a call of a shoplifter that assaulted an employee at Target Thursday night. Officers say 36-year-old Sonia Scott concealed clothing in her purse and attempted to leave the store undetected.  An employee confronted her and she shoved the employee several times, causing minor lacerations to the employee’s arm.  Scott then left the area.

Police found Scott in the area of Capital Green.  Officers tried to take her into custody and was eventually arrested after a brief struggle.  During a search, police found a claw hammer hidden in the small of her back.

Scott has been charged with 2nd degree robbery, offensive touching, resisting arrest, carrying a concealed dangerous instrument, and disorderly conduct.
