An officer was injured in what appears to be an attempted shoplifting that resulted in a fight of some sort around 3:00 pm Monday May 7. The suspect was detained after trying to steal merchandise from Kohl’s, however, a struggle occurred where the officer sustained a leg injury. The suspect then fled on foot where he attempted to carjack a vehicle but was unsuccessful.
The injured officer was taken away via ambulance and is expected to be okay. Brentwood police described it as a “moderate” injury but did not clarify.
The suspect, identified as 34-year-old Brentwood resident, Temu Jabari Curry was later captured and police found a bloody white shirt on a trail. There was also another brief struggle during the arrest. Officers were also searching for a gun of some sort within the Kohls parking lot.
According to a source, Curry will be booked with felony battery on a police officer and resisting arrest. Petty theft will also be included but that is the least of Curry’s worries. He has been booked Martinez.
