A 49-year-old man resisted arrest after lifting a laptop from a chain cosmetics store on Broadway. At 3:54 a.m. on Sunday, July 14, the man was observed exiting the store in possession of the stolen computer. Police apprehended the man after a brief chase on foot. The man resisted arrest by flailing his arms, refusing to be handcuffed.
