MONONA (WKOW) -- Monona police say an 18-year-old man has been arrested after stealing a pair of shoes from Kohls Department Store.

Officials say they were called to Kohls just before 6:23 p.m. Wednesday night to a report of an adult male who had stolen a pair of shoes and got away.

A short time later, a Monona police officer saw a male matching the suspect's description get on a bus at the corner of Broadway and Bridge Road. The officer approached the suspect on the bus. The suspect, 18-year-old Kenneth Johnson, had the stolen shoes hiding in his pants.

Johnson fought with the police officer in an attempt to get away, but was restrained and arrested.

Johnson was taken to the Dane County Jail on charges of resisting arrest and retail theft.
