Rock Hill police arrested a woman on Thursday who is accused of stealing several purses from TJ Maxx and injuring an off-duty officer in the parking lot while running away from the store in October 2012, according to police documents.

Shalonda Cunningham, 24, of Charlotte was charged with grand larceny, resisting arrest and criminal conspiracy, according to a Rock Hill police report.

In October, an off-duty police officer saw Cunningham and a man with her steal several purses worth $2,000 from the TJ Maxx store near Dave Lyle Boulevard, the report states.

The officer tried to detain Cunningham in the store’s parking lot as she and the man attempted to flee in a gold Chrysler with a N.C. license plate, according to the report. Two other people were inside the car.

Cunningham is accused of slamming the car door on the officer’s hand, according to the report.

Rock Hill authorities put out a “be on the lookout” call for the Chrysler for area law enforcement agencies.

The N.C. Highway Patrol and Charlotte Mecklenburg Police Department found Cunningham and others in the car near Arrowwood Drive, according to the report.

After a foot chase, Cunningham was arrested, the report states.
