VICTORVILLE, Calif. ( — A man and woman threatened a loss prevention officer with a knife after attempting to steal a backpack filled with merchandise from Sears, officials said.

It happened at about 2:47 pm on December 30, 2019, on the 14400 block of Bear Valley Road inside the Mall of Victor Valley.
