A Wyandanch woman is accused of stealing from 7-Eleven and injuring a store worker.

Police say Krystal Johnson stuffed ear buds and a charger in her purse and tried to leave without paying.

The incident happened around 5:30 p.m. at the 7-Eleven on Stewart Avenue in Bethpage.

The store owner told police he tried to stop Johnson, but she threw a metal display rack at him.

That rack hit a female store employee, causing a bruise on her head.

The owner of the store then followed Johnson to the Bethpage train station where she was arrested.
