Safeway - Detaining my daughter
Donut - Complaint
SAN FRANCISCO, CALIFORNIA -- Hi my name is Shalonda. I have a 15 year old daughter that I drop off every day to Safeway to buy her 2 for 1 dollar donuts. My daughter had just started high school so she was so afraid every morning to go to school. I had just dropped her off to Safeway when 5 minutes later I get a call from her stating she is being detained for stealing a 50 cent donut. She had explained to me a lady had detained her and was going through her bags. My daughter said they told her that they were calling the police.
My daughter left the store and ran to school. The next morning I went to the store and asked the lady to tell me why she detained my daughter. The lady told me she thought my daughter was someone else. I had explained to her she had no right to put her hands on my daughter or detain a minor without calling her parents. She was not the security she does the carts.
I was really upset about this whole situation. We shop at Safeway on a regular basis. My daughter has never been through anything like this.
