Associated Press

AUGUSTA, Ga. - A U.S. Marine reservist collecting toys for children was stabbed when he helped stop a suspected shoplifter in eastern Georgia.

Best Buy sales manager Orvin Smith told The Augusta Chronicle that 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, assorted lacerations and bruises he obtained when he fell trying to run after stabbing the Marine.

The suspect, whose name was not released, was held until police arrived. The Richmond County Sheriff's office said it is investigating.

Good for the Marines. Very Happy

Suspect should be a candidate for dumbest criminal of the year for pulling a knife on 4 Marines. He got what he deserves and then some.

oh man hes a dumb ass all right. I bet the local coppers gave him a kick or two for good luck and sure hope the ambos forgot the morphine and drove over every bump and kerb they could find. stealing from kids is just plain wrong. I hope the twit ends up in jail cause he wont get much sympathy there either.

All I find elsewhere is this:

Regretfully, the scripted part of the news article is what has been added in as "unofficial news". However the fact that its not truthful isn't the regretful fact. The regretful fact is that the Marines kept their discipline and didn't actually hurt the guy more then necessary to stop him.
