Police: Woman bites off guard's finger after stealing condoms, lubricant from WalMart
A 23-year-old woman has been charged with assault after police say she stole items from a Myrtle Beach WalMart and got in to a fight with two loss prevention officers, according to a police report.
Carolynn Elizabeth Wright was arrested on Sunday, Jan. 10 by Myrtle Beach police.
The arrest came after police responded to an assault call at the WalMart on Seaboard Street.
When officers arrived they saw a group of people and a gold van, according to a police report.
Two women, both loss prevention officers for the store, told police they tried to stop Wright after they saw her conceal several items and exit the store.
A fight ensued between the women and Wright. The women said Wright punched one of them in the side of her head, causing bleeding around her left ear. The other woman said Wright bit down on her finger and wouldn't let go, causing a portion of her finger to come off.
Another woman told police Wright grabbed her phone when she tried to call 911 and when she reached over to get her phone back Wright grabbed her hair. The woman said she punched Wright in the face to get her to let go of her hair.
A man told police that Wright went inside the store and when she came back she told him to run. When he said, "What?," she replied "Drive!" But there was someone standing in front of the van he was driving. A short time later police responded.
The items reported stolen include:
Condoms, valued at $7.98; Lubricant, valued at $2.94; Clothing, valued at $9.97; 2 pair of panties, valued at $6.96 each; and 1 camisole, valued at $1.68
