A man was arrested Friday night after allegedly attacking a security guard with a walking stick at a Dollar Tree in southern Colorado Springs, police said.

Robert Norris, 52, had been in the Dollar Tree at 1877 South Nevada Avenue for several hours – concealing items in his pockets – before a security guard approached him around 8:40 p.m. Friday, police said.

Norris hit the security guard in the face with a walking stick before struggling with the guard on the ground, police said.

Police arrested Norris on suspicion of second-degree assault as well as theft charges.

The security guard was taken to a local hospital but the nature of his injuries were not released.
