Woman robs Kroger store, punches manager in the face

Police arrested and charged 42 year old Valerie Knight with robbery, a second degree felony.

Knight loaded up a basket with over 200 dollars worth of grocery items and attempted to walk out of the Kroger store without paying. The store is located at 6200 Hwy 6 in Missouri City.

When the manager tried to stop her by grabbing her arm, she pushed his hand away, he then tried to trip her and she punched him in the face and got into a car with two men.

According to police reports, Knight was belligerent , uncooperative and smelled of alcohol. Police had to handcuff her to speak with her. She told police her sister had paid for the groceries, however, she could not tell police where her sister was or why she left the cart behind if the items had been paid for.

The manager told police he had issued a criminal trespass warning before to Knight. Police also recognized one of the men in the car with Knight as a man he had previously arrested for shoplifting at the same Kroger store.
