On December 15 at about 4:21 p.m.
Officers were dispatched to the Co-Opportunity Market, 1525 Broadway, regarding a disturbance at the business. The suspect was detained outside while leaving the store. One of the officers said this was the same suspect who earlier in the day was seen cutting power cords and cables to a computer at a Honda dealership. When he was confronted, the suspect brandished a large pair of scissors and attempted to assault the dealership employees. The suspect left the Honda dealership and began causing a disturbance at the market.
While inside the market, the suspect was walking around yelling and opening up food items. The suspect then grabbed $1,000 from a register, pushed the cashier who tried to stop him, and ran out the front door. The suspect was detained by a customer and several employees.
Romero Anthony Fields had bail set at $50,000.
