Wal-Mart incident elevated to robbery

A simple shoplifting charge was elevated to robbery in a Sept. 24 incident at Wal-Mart, a police report said.

A man had stolen small items and was leaving the store when another man attempted to stop him to make a citizens' arrest; the thief pushed his accuser, according to the report. California law defines robbery as taking property "by means of force or fear."

No arrest has been made.
