SEATTLE (AP) - A Seattle woman has been charged with assault after two grocery store workers said she struck them with nunchucks while stealing a bottle of shampoo.

Seattlepi.com reports (https://is.gd/sYvpK4 ) that the incident happened May 18 at the Grocery Outlet in the Lake City neighborhood. King County prosecutors say 26-year-old Sharnika Joy Armstead attacked the store’s owner and a manager with the homemade nunchucks when they confronted her as she left the store.

Prosecutors say the men had asked the woman to return to the store so that she could be photographed and issued a trespass notification. The manager managed to wrestle her to the ground, but said she bit his thigh, breaking the skin through his pants.

Armstead’s public defender did not immediately return a call seeking comment.
