ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – Albuquerque police said two mall guards trying to stop shoplifters were stabbed with a knife. It happened at the Macy’s at the Coronado Mall.

According to a criminal complaint, two guards caught one shoplifter, but had to let him go after his partner in crime, James Litteral, charged them with a pocket knife.

A Macy’s guard and a mall guard each received small knife wounds while disarming and detaining Litteral.

Court records show Litteral had two pending felony cases from last year.

A judge set his bond at $50,000.

In one of those prior cases, Litteral is accused of leading deputies on a high speed chase through the north valley in July.
