Teens accused of injuring store clerk during burglary

The New York Police Department reported that a 74-year-old store clerk was injured after shoplifting teenagers allegedly injured her during a game of keep-away. The incident reportedly occurred on April 10 at a Sam's Store located in the 400 block of East Tremont Avenue near Washington Avenue.

When people think of someone shoplifting, they often imagine someone taking something without paying, leaving a store and then almost immediately being stopped by security guards and forced to return the stolen property. They imagine the entire situation being over in a matter of minutes.

Petit larceny and grand larceny

New York residents may be charged with larceny if they are accused of stealing property from another person by physically taking the property, using fraud to obtain the property or embezzling the property. To convict an individual for larceny, the prosecution must be able to show that the defendant intended to withhold the stolen property from its owner permanently or for such a long time that the property's value would decrease significantly.

New York man faces shoplifting charges

Why a shoplifting conviction is more serious than you think
