A woman suspected of shoplifting at a Marshall's store in Lewes allegedly threatened to stab store employees with a needle and kicked one in the chin.

Thirty-year-old Celena Bastian of Millsboro was arrested after the incident Thursday. Delaware State Police say she was stopped by two store security employees who saw her concealing items in her jacket.

When the workers confronted Bastian, police say she began to yell and threatened to stab them with a "dirty needle."

Later, police say Bastian kicked one employee in the chin. The worker didn't require medical attention.

Bastian was restrained until police arrived. She's charged with shoplifting, terroristic threatening and other offenses.
