Woman accused of biting Wal-Mart employee

KODIAK — A Wal-Mart employee in Kodiak is taking a bite out of crime — the hard way.

A 33-year-old Kodiak woman is accused of shoplifting and biting an employee in the chest while he was trying to hold her in the parking lot until police arrived.

Hope Fuller is charged with assault, theft and criminal mischief.

The Kodiak Daily Mirror reports authorities say she was shopping at Wal-Mart on June 7. Court documents say she entered with a large, relatively empty bag and security footage shows that bag much fuller after she left a changing room.

She was confronted leaving the store by employees, including Mark Pascua, when she allegedly bit him on the chest. Pascua described the alleged attack as “creepy.”

A June 28 court date was set.
