Macon man indicted in attempted stabbing

A man accused of shoplifting at the Wal-Mart on Harrison Road and attempting to stab an employee was indicted Tuesday by a Bibb County grand jury.

Shaun Brent Conner, 21, of Lafayette Drive, is charged with aggravated assault, theft by shoplifting and criminal trespass, according to Bibb County Superior Court records.

Conner allegedly was caught shoplifting two CDs on Sept. 11 after being banned from the store for two previous incidents. When a store worker asked Conner to empty his pockets, he drew a pocket knife and attempted to stab the employee, according to a Bibb County Sheriff’s Office report.

The employee managed to take the knife away from Conner. Conner was released from the Bibb County jail on $4,700 bond in September, according to jail records.— Amy Leigh Womack
