LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A Jeffersontown, Ky. man was arrested Monday afternoon after police say he stole items from a local Kroger, then shoved one of the store's female employees.
Police say 34-year-old David Dusel walked into a Kroger, located in Jeffersontown near the corner of Taylorsville Road and Chenoweth Run Road, and filled a shopping cart with items.
According to an arrest report, Dusel then left the Kroger without paying for the items in the shopping cart. A loss prevention employee spotted Dusel leaving the store with the unpaid items, and followed him.
Once in the parking lot, police say the employee confronted Dusel about the stolen merchandise. After Dusel was unable to show a receipt for the items, the employee tried to get him back into the store, according to an arrest report.
