A scuffle at the mall between a suspected shoplifter and a security guard led to a forcible robbery charge against the would-be thief, a police report said.
Stanley Leon Turner Jr., 27, of Oakland was arrested around 8:21 p.m. Nov. 4 outside Macy's in Stoneridge Shopping Center.
Turner tried on an $89 pair of Polo shoes, gave his old shoes to a female acquaintance, then left the store, according to the report, which said he was stopped inside the mall by a guard.
The security guard tried to bring Turner back inside, but a scuffle broke out between the two, leading to the forcible robbery charge.
