(Port Angeles) -- 28-year-old Alexander Greene of Kingston pled guilty to the charge of Assault 2nd Degree this Wednesday and was sentenced to 53 months prison by Clallam County Judge George Wood.
According to court documents, Greene attempted to shoplift a six pack of beer and three bottles of malt liquor from Weel Road Deli in February.
When a store clerk attempted to stop Greene from leaving the store, a struggle ensued and Greene brandished a knife and swung it at the store clerk.
The clerk sustained a cut and injuries to his forehead and hand, but was able to overtake and restrain Greene.
The clerk and other neighboring business employees detained Greene by wrapping his ankles and wrists in duct tape until police arrived.
