Bystander footage showed the man confront the suspected shoplifter and reach for her bags, which set off a scuffle between the two near the entrance.
A witness said the altercation happened Sunday around 1:30 p.m. at a T.J. Maxx store on Limonite Avenue.
Even though that is shoplifting. That man assaulted that girl. He should have just minded his own business. And got a license plate number and description of the get away car.

Video showed two women with black hoodies trying to walk out of the store with armfuls of merchandise.
After one woman leaves, a man jumps in to stop the other woman from walking away. A brief struggle ensues and the man eventually knocks the woman to the ground, and she appears to leave without the two bags she tried to take.
A report was taken by law enforcement. No arrest has been made so far.
It’s unclear what merchandise was actually taken.
