CHARLESTON, W.Va. — A Charleston woman who allegedly assaulted a worker at a Kanawha County store last month while leaving with a cart load of stolen merchandise was arrested over the weekend.

Shadonna Collins, 25, was charged with robbery Saturday and was being held in the South Central Regional Jail.  Bond for her was set at $20,000.

Surveillance video showed a woman, who was allegedly Collins, walking out of Marshall’s on RHL Boulevard in South Charleston on Sunday, Nov. 24.  When a store manager tried to stop her and ask for a receipt, the manager was pushed to the ground and kicked in the head in front of other shoppers.

Investigators said Collins then took the cart full of designer purses and other items to her SUV and drove away from the store.

An anonymous tip lead police to Collins.

    Unfortunately, they walk among us every day. How can someone be so morally bankrupt? Anyone try to look up her Facebook page ? Curious as to how much is revealed there.

  • Myron

    I am going to take a wild guess and, of course, I'm just spitballing here, but among the possessions the police found on her person were a snap card, chip card for 5 kids, lottery tickets, a list with other peoples credit card and soc sec numbers, and a couple of boxes of sudafed for that cold the kids just cannot seem to get over.


      And I bet you are right on target.

        Actually, they were at Marshall's, not Target.

        OK, OK, bad joke. I'll move on . . . .

  • Myron

    Her name is Shadonna?! She sounds like she is, well, tall.

    • Lou

      LOL, go to the wchstv site and you will see that she is very, um, tall.

      • Brian

        Well I don't know what you little shorties think being tall has to do with it. There are a lot of trashy short people in WV. You seem to be two of them. How does looking down your short little noses at tall people make you better than them?

        • Myron

          Brian. Short people are the happiest around, because we are always the last to know its raining.

            Way to dodge the issue and not own what you were really saying in your original comment.

    Designer purses at Marshall's? If they say so.

  • RogerD

    I'm a little confused by the article. Was the suspect charged for the attack, the robbery, or both?

    From the information provided, it sounds like both charges would be appropriate.

  • Dale

    Wonder where Ms Collins works? Wonder how many children she has?


      Who care? Burn this woman at the stake. Lock her up and throw away the key.
