BAYONNE, NJ - A 49-year-old Jersey City Woman was found to have seven outstanding warrants from nearby towns when members of the Bayonne Police Department apprehended her Friday.

The incident began at about noon when employees at Family Dollar, 1347 Kennedy Boulevard, reported that the suspect, identified as Tria Watson, attempted to leave the store with merchandise she had failed to pay for.

Upon their arrival offices were told that Watson entered the store and began placing items in her bag. When a male employee confronted Watson, the report continues, she ignored him, walking towards the door.

The suspect is said to have then attempted to bite that employee, and, while he fended her off, attack a female employee by punching her in the face, pulling her hair, and pushing her onto the counter.

Responding officers apprehended Watson as she exited the store and reported to finding several bottles of Dove body wash and two pairs of pants in the suspects bag.

Watson was transported to Hudson County Jail.
