Courting trouble

The Court Street CVS reported another violent crime last week, a Dec. 3 robbery involving a knife-wielding shoplifter who expected to be let go after he returned his ill-gotten booty.

One week after our Police Blotter crackled with a juicy item about a pushy shoplifter at the store between First and Second places, the manager told cops that a perp entered the store about about 2:50 pm and tried to leave without paying for several items.

Employees wrestled with the villain and he gave back the items. But when workers refused to allow him to leave, he got violent, pulling a knife.

“I gave you your stuff back — get off me,” he said, brandishing the blade before making his getaway.

Cops are looking for a 6-foot, 230-pound bald man in his 40s.

Where: 395 Court St.
