Kittery police charged a New Hampshire man with theft and may seek an indictment on assault charges following an altercation Friday in the parking lot of the Kittery Trading Post.

Police arrested Mark Schwarz, 30 of North Hampton at 1:30 p.m. on charges of felony theft and being a fugitive from justice.

Sgt. Gary Eaton said Schwarz has arrest warrants issued in New Hampshire so he will be held without bail at York County Jail in Alfred until his arraignment next week.

Schwarz is accused of stealing clothes from the Kittery Trading Post, and when confronted by a store security officer, a scuffle broke out, Eaton said.

Schwarz was charged with a felony because he has at least two prior convictions for theft, Eaton said.
