Add assault to the list of charges faced by a 38-year-old Windsor woman after a suspect spat in the face of a security guard at a Shoppers Drug Mart.

Windsor police were called to the Shoppers in the 1600-block of Wyandotte St.W. around 6pm Wednesday after a loss prevention officer watched a woman select several items, conceal them in her purse, and leave without paying. He placed the woman under arrest, and she was escorted back to the security office where she began to struggle. An on-duty security guard tried to help, and was spat on.

The total value of the products taken is $59.24 including sunglasses and makeup.
