Broken arm for grocery worker who stops shoplifter

FERNDALE -- Police in Ferndale say a teenage grocery store employee who confronted two suspected shoplifters got his arm broken when one of the young men attacked him with a bottle of Grey Goose vodka.
Lt. Bill Hatchett said the shoplifting suspects each had two bottles of vodka when they walked out of the Haggen store on Sunday evening.
Police said one of the young men tripped as he started running away so the grocery worker was able to catch up to him. Hatchett said the second suspect first threatened to stab the employee, then hit the teen with one of the vodka bottles, shattering the glass and breaking the employee's arm.
The Bellingham Herald reported that Eric Robinson Jr. and Tytan Jameson were arrested nearby and booked for investigation of first-degree robbery.
