Alleged 7-11 Shoplifter (and Victim of Attack) Arrested

A video uploaded to YouTube depicted three 7-Eleven employees attacking an alleged shoplifter, biting him, tearing his clothes from his body, beating him. It was disgusting. Now, it's being reported that the alleged shoplifter has been arrested and charged with robbery, assault, criminal mischief, and criminal possession of stolen property.

The incident happened at the 7-Eleven on Flatbush, near Barclays Center.

7-Eleven has stated that it "does not condone action that restrains customers or suspected robbers. As a matter of fact, this precept is part of a formal program we offer franchisees to use in training their employees."

One of the employees has been fired. The other employees will have to take the corporate training class again.
