He was also charged with unsworn falsification and was released on bail.
Police are looking for a suspect who was allegedly involved in a shoplifting at the Ulta beauty supply store on two separate occasions on September 28 and October 8. Officer Campbell Knox said the store manager reported to police that on September 28, the suspect stole a bottle of perfume worth over $80. Then, on October 8, the same suspect allegedly took two more bottles of perfume, worth about $100.
During the most recent incident, the store manager told police that when store management confronted the suspect, he began being verbally abusive before dropping one of the bottles. Knox said a construction worker, who saw the commotion, also confronted the suspect outside of the store at which time the suspect dropped the second bottle.
The suspect, described as a black man, about six feet tall with a thin build wearing tan pants, a sweater, and a tan knit head wrap, was seen getting into a beige Nissan four-door car being driven by a black female.

When the store detective caught up to Platizky, Platizky again began physically assaulting and verbally abusing the store detective, said Sabatino. West Windsor police arrived and arrested him.
