NEW HAVEN, Conn. (WTNH) -- A woman was arrested after stealing a wig from a beauty store and fighting with the store owner in an attempt to get away with it.
The 70-year-old father was back behind the counter, despite being punched, his store owner son was there too, even though he was bitten trying to catch the shoplifter.
"She started swinging at me and she hit me on the right side of my face and knocked my glasses off," store owner Jongyol Lee said.
They've been running the New Haven beauty store Sassy on Chapel for a decade and shoplifting happens nearly everyday. However, this time they were taking a stand over a $15 clearance wig.
Store surveillance shows the suspect leaving and the elderly man chasing her.
"When somebody is caught stealing like that usually they are shamed publicly, they drop it and leave," said Lee, "but in this case she continued on her way."
They followed the woman out of the store, across the street and all the way down the block.
"The length of a full block she just kept hitting me and smacking the back of my head," Lee said, "she kicked me a few times in my back."
The woman is Lowpel Davis, described by police as crazed kicking and struggling with officers who arrived on the scene.
Davis appeared calm in court, and seemingly unaware of the anger she stirred.
"We've been trying not to get involved like this," Lee said, "but emotions sometimes get heated, sometimes you can't walk away."
And willing to once again take a stand to protect their business.
