FAIRFIELD - Fairfield police say a Bridgeport man is facing charges for shoplifting from Stop & Shop and then threatening store employees who confronted him.

Police arrested Marvin Hampton last night.

They say he stole about $260 worth of merchandise from the store on Villa Avenue.

Police say when employees followed Hampton into the parking lot, he told them "you better back up or I'll shoot you."

Officers say they were able to find Hampton in the area afterward with the help of a K9.
