TRUSSVILLE, Ala. (AP) — Police say a shoplifting man stabbed two Belk employees in Alabama.
Trussville police Lt. Phil Dillon tells news outlets the injuries both workers suffered weren't life-threatening and they've been released from a hospital. The stabbing happened Monday afternoon at a Belk in Trussville.
Police say 55-year-old Robert Anthony Frye attacked the department store employees after they saw him stealing. Dillon says Frye fled into woods nearby, and police used tracking dogs to help take him into custody.
Dillon says detectives are seeking warrants against Frye. He says Frye will be charged with two counts of robbery and two counts of attempted murder.
Court records show Frye has a criminal history with convictions for robbery and escape from a state prison. It's unclear if he has a lawyer who could comment.
