For retail loss prevention employees, apprehending suspected shoplifters in Elk Grove is increasingly resulting in physical confrontations. Yesterday's incident at the Home Depot was the third case in the last week where store employees were accosted by shoplifting suspects.

According to Elk Grove Police, 39-year old Dacorey Satterwhite of Sacramento, was observed shoplifting merchandise. When he left the store without paying, a store loss prevention employee approached him and Satterwhite initiated a physical confrontation.

Following the confrontation, the suspect then ran to an awaiting car that was occupied by 42-year old Sharon Cooper of Sacramento and another occupant. The car fled but was quickly stopped by responding police officers. 

After being positively identified, Satterwhite and Cooper were arrested and booked into the county jail where they remain in custody on a $10,000 bail.    

This is the third incident in the last week where Elk Grove retail employees were physically confronted by shoplifting suspects. Last Thursday a Bed, Bath and Beyond employee was pepper sprayed and on Sunday a Winco employee was injured in an altercation with a suspect.
