WEST ASHLEY, SC (WCSC) - Charleston police arrested a man and a teenaged boy accused of biting and shocking employees at a Walmart while trying to escape the store with more than $750 of meat Monday night.

Police responded to the shoplifting call about 7:30 p.m. Monday and helped the store's loss prevention officers take the two suspects into custody, the police report stated.

Darryl James Grant, 23, and a 15-year-old boy were charged with strong-armed robbery.

The Walmart employees told police the suspects shocked them several times with a stun gun when they tried to prevent the two suspects from leaving the store. One of the employees said one suspect bit him in the ribcage during the altercation.

According to the report, the two suspects did nothing to conceal the meat they were trying to steal. It was clearly visible in a shopping cart.

The 64 packages of meat were all returned to the meat case.

Grant was transported to the Charleston County Detention Center and his accomplice was transported to the Charleston County Department of Juvenile Justice.
