Sean Barrett and Kohl's apparently have a long and contentious history.
Barrett was served with an affidavit in 2010 stating that he was not allowed to enter any Kohl's locations. Police did not specify why Barrett, 27, was banned from the department store, but police say Barrett violated that ban in dramatic fashion on Monday morning.
Barrett went into the Lake Ronkonkoma Kohl's shortly before noon Monday and attempted to steal multiple pairs of jeans, police said. He also punched a Kohl's employee, police said.
Barrett was arrested and charged with third degree burglary, third degree robbery and second degree harassment. He was arraigned in First District Court in Central Islip on Thursday and is currently being held on $25,000 bond or $10,000 cash bail.
