I think you got tricked by a fake news site.
Take a looksee at the main page for the site you linked, all kinds of clickbait stories. The "author" of the article you linked to has exactly ONE post - the one about the woman CHP. I also cannot find ANY references to this event on any other reputable news site. If you Google the perps name and the lady with the CHP's name, it comes up blank. If you google "Chief of Police Matthew Collingsworth" that also comes up blank. What jurisdiction in VA is the Chief in charge of? I should be able to find all sorts of public releases and statements attributable to the Chief, but not one is found. Also note the "article" does not say where in VA this occurred. I cannot find any web links to "Bradfords" store in Virginia.
Until such a time as other more reputable news sites (non "clickbait") start carrying this "news" I'd place it in the "highly questionable" bin. Nothing in the article adds up and there is a general lack of specifics.
