Two men were arrested Tuesday afternoon after a physical altercation erupted, stemming from the attempted theft of a purse, at the Portage Wal-Mart. Portage Police report a witness reported hearing a woman screaming for help, and located her in the laundry detergent aisle, where a black male in a red coat was reportedly attempting to flee with her purse. The suspect, later identified as 19 year old Charles Reed III, was grabbed by the witness and an altercation ensued until other patrons came to hold down Reed until Loss Prevention and police arrived. Reed is charged with felony theft and misdemeanor battery, for allegedly striking a patron. A 20 year old Lake Station man, who witnesses say was in the mix of the altercation, was arrested on a warrant in Lake Station for failure to appear for never obtaining a license and conversion.
