Police in Little Rock say a mall worker wrestled away a stripper pole from a would-be thief who bit the employee during the struggle.

According to police, a woman entered a Spencer’s store in Little Rock’s Park Plaza Mall at midday one Wednesday and tried to return an item. A police report says that the woman became frustrated when she was refused money. She tried to leave with a stripper pole instead of a refund.

Little Rock television station KATV reports that the woman bit the worker’s arm during a brief struggle. But police say the employee was able to take back the stripper pole, valued at $40, and the woman ran away.

Police say no arrests have been made. It’s not known whether they have tried visiting local strip clubs… to investigate, of course.
