A Danville woman charged with attempted murder after biting a store clerk last week during a robbery has tested positive for HIV, police said.
Results received Friday by local police show that Victoria Caprice Spoonamore, 29, of 448 Patrician Place, Apt. 3, tested positive, according to Interim Chief Tony Gray.
The unidentified female clerk remains on sick leave since the incident at Chills Quick Stop on Hustonville Road. Police say she was bitten twice by Spoonamore during a scuffle after Spoonamore took money from a cash drawer.
Gray said tests showed the clerk has not been infected, but she will have to take additional tests.
"She is still very much shaken up," Chris Hill, owner of Chills, said today. "The medicine she is taking is making her extremely sick, and she will continue to have tests for a quite a while."
