JAILED: Doncaster thief behind bars after attacking shop worker

A Doncaster woman who attacked a shop worker after trying to steal alcohol from a small supermarket has been jailed.

Rebecca Lyne, 42, assaulted a member of staff at Heron Foods in The Green, Thorne, on Monday 2 October after trying to walk out of with £12 worth of cans of gin.

Staff challenged Lyne as she attempted to leave the store with the stolen items. However, rather than cooperating, she ran from the premises with staff giving chase.

Lyne then attacked one member of staff by hitting her in the chest, before verbally abusing other employees outside the store. She also went on to send a threatening message via social media to the staff member she assaulted.

Lyne, of Kenyon Close in Thorne, was arrested by officers and charged with theft and assault. She appeared before Doncaster Magistrates' Court last Wednesday (4 October) and was jailed for six months.
