CALIFORNIA—On Friday afternoon May 15, two suspects were arrested following a theft of a 24-pack of beer from a liquor store, and an ensuing attack on an employee who tried to stop the theft, Millbrae Police Bureau reported.
The incident happened on Friday morning at the 99 Liquor store at 1370 El Camino Real. Police reported that the liquor store employee informed them that the suspect left the store with a 24-pack of Modelo beer, while the other suspect waited outside.
