CAMDEN, NJ – After shoplifting and being approached by a ShopRite employee in Brooklawn, a 37 year old Camden man kicked things up a notch. Roman spat on the employee and sped away in his car, striking another employee, according to witnesses.
Alycia D. Roman, 37, of Camden, was arrested on Sunday, April 12, by the Brooklawn Police Department on charges of robbery (2nd degree), aggravated assault with a deadly weapon (3rd degree), shoplifting (disorderly persons offense), and violation of the emergency orders. Police responded to a report of shoplifting at the ShopRite in Brooklawn. Store employees followed Roman to her vehicle after she allegedly walked out of the store with various items without paying for them. When one employee tried to recover the items, Roman argued with him and allegedly spat on his shirt. She then drove in reverse, allegedly striking another employee. As she drove away, that second man had to jump out of the way to avoid being struck again.
