A 33-year-old man body slammed a female loss prevention officer after she caught him shoplifting, according to San Antonio police.
Michael Wanaker was arrested Saturday on suspicion of robbery, jail records show.
Wanaker was at a Macy’s store in Ingram Park Mall on Thursday when he put merchandise inside a bag and tried to walk out of the store, according to his arrest affidavit.
The loss prevention officer tried to stop him and retrieve the merchandise but Wanaker slammed the woman to the ground before fleeing in a silver Honda with the stolen items, police said.
Investigators discovered Wanaker had also been caught shoplifting at another Macy’s store at Rolling Oaks Mall, authorities said.
In that incident his license plate information was obtained, which helped police identify Wanaker as the suspect, according to the affidavit.
Wanaker’s bail was set at $10,000, according to jail records.
