A 15-year old suspect is being held in a detention center after he was arrested for grabbing a shopper’s billfold and cell phone in the Crossroads Center parking lot. Waite Park police were called to the west lot near Macy’s at 5:00 p.m. Sunday. A 19-year old woman reported she was walking to her vehicle when she met and passed a black juvenile male…after passing her, he turned around and grabbed her cell phone and billfold .
He then ran west through the parking lot. The woman chased him and was assisted by another person who was in the parking lot. The suspect ran across Waite Avenue north and onto 2nd Street north where he got into a car. A second witness to the incident got the license plate of the vehicle the teen entered.
St. Cloud Police stopped the vehicle later, however the suspect was no longer in it. After investigating further, the suspect was arrested July 6 and is being held until his initial court appearance.
