Police arrested a 57-year-old Bridgeport man Sunday after he allegedly assaulted a Westfield mall security officer, and narrowly missed another with his vehicle.
According to police, Dennis Stewart fled JC Penney with over $1,300 worth of merchandise. Police said Stewart violently shoved a security officer who was attempting to stop him, then ran to his car. Stewart then drove toward another security officer, who had to jump out of the way. As he sped out of the parking lot, Stewart nearly struck several pedestrians and other vehicles.
