Woman stealing from Family Dollar store slices employee’s neck


A Family Dollar store employee is in critical condition after a woman slit her throat when she tried to stop her from stealing from the store.
The incident occurred on August 11th around 2:13 p.m.
The Mobile Police Department reported that the employee noticed the woman attempting to leave the store without paying and went to intervene.
The employee was transported to a hospital, where she was in critical condition.
Police tracked down the suspect about a mile away from the store.
The suspect has been identified as 39-year-old Takea Shackleford.
She has been charged with first-degree attempted murder and first-degree robbery.
Officials say Shackleford is also a suspect in a robbery that took place at a Walmart in July.
Authorities say she injured two people as she drove through the parking lot while fleeing the scene.
She has also been charged with two counts of leaving the scene of an accident, one count each of reckless endangerment, and theft of property in connection with that incident.
