Couple Charged with Aggravated Assault on Security Guard
Brownsville police arrested Pedro Casas and Angelica Rubio as they attempted to steal merchandise from the J.C. Penny's store at Sunrise Mall.
The two suspects attempted to leave the store without paying for the merchandise, but a security guard confronted the pair and was threatened by Casas with a screwdriver and Rubio did bite the guard on the arm. A customer in the store assisted in helping remove both suspects off the security guard and the couple was detained until police arrived. Both Casas and Rubio were charged with aggravated robbery, organized criminal activity and endangering a child.
