On Monday, around 6:45 p.m., police were called to the store on the report of an assault. Callers stated a man was inside the store and destroying numerous things. Callers also reported the man, identified as Jason Gilbertie, also tried to punch someone.

When confronted by a security guard, Gilbertie reportedly threw items at them and tried to punch them. Another security guard tried to pepper spray Gilbertie.

Responding police officers took Gilbertie into custody after a brief struggle, according to officials.
