A shoplifter at Mankato’s Best Buy is accused of injuring a Mankato Police Officer.

According to a criminal complaint, 38-year-old Jarion Walker of Minneapolis allegedly stole a pair of headphones.

The complaint says he tried to flee when the Mankato officer came to arrest him. That’s when he struck her in the face, causing swelling under her eye.

The complaint says Walker had been previously banned from the store from prior offenses.
