WINNIPEG - Sandra Houston was looking for Christmas gifts for her grandchildren when she heard yelling coming from the checkout aisle at a Winnipeg Toys "R" Us store.

She spotted a security guard tussling with a suspected shoplifter near the exit door. The pair — both women — were punching, pulling hair and slapping each other, she said.

After a few minutes, she said the guard pulled a knife from her back pocket.
