Joplin police seeking shoplifter who threatened worker

Police are trying to establish the identity of a woman who shoplifted almost $200 worth of clothes Sunday at Northpark Mall in Joplin and then pulled a knife on a security worker who tried to stop her.

Police Cpl. Chuck Niess said the woman walked out of the J.C. Penney store without paying for the items.

When a female worker tried to stop her in the parking lot, she pulled out a knife and threatened to stab the worker.

The woman left the area in a black vehicle, Niess said.

The incident remained under investigation Monday without an arrest having been made.
