AUGUSTA, Ga. - A United States Marine reservist collecting toys for children was stabbed as he helped stop a suspected shoplifter in eastern Georgia.

Best Buy sales manager Orvin Smith told The Augusta Chronicle that the man was seen on surveillance cameras Friday, putting a laptop under his jacket at the Augusta store. When confronted, the man became irate, knocked
down an employee, pulled a knife and ran toward the door.


Outside were four Marines collecting toys for the service branch's, "Toys for Tots" program. Smith said the Marines stopped the man, but he stabbed one of them, Cpl. Phillip Duggan, in the back. The cut did not appear to be severe.

The suspect was transported to the local hospital with two broken arms, a broken leg, possible broken ribs, and various lacerations and bruises he obtained when he fell trying to run through the parking lot after stabbing the Marine.

The suspect, whose name was not released, was held until police arrived. The Richmond County Sheriff's office said it investigated the incident, and the investigators found out it happened just liked the Marines said.

Must have been a nasty fall! :nuts:


Semper Fi! :)

He's lucky. They must have been in the Christmas spirit to let him off so lightly. They gave him a break. :devil:
