Dean Crooks, 33, of Seabrook Rise, was sentenced to five months for assault by beating at Basildon Crown Court on Friday, 17 January.
He was also given two months for attempted theft with both sentences to run concurrently. Crooks had previously pleaded guilty to all the offences.
The incident began when his accomplice, Laura Reid, 36, also of Seabrooke Rise, tried to take four bottles of alcohol from a Morrisons in London Road, Grays.
She was stopped and called out to Crooks for help at around 3.45pm on Tuesday, 30 July.
He tried to take her handbag containing the bottles but was stopped by a member of staff and detained.
During the struggle, he kicked a worker.
Reid was jailed for six months at Basildon Crown Court on Monday, 4 November after admitting to three counts of shoplifting, two counts of failing to surrender to bail, breaching a community order and possession of cannabis.
The Grays Town Centre Team applied for a criminal behaviour order, which was granted on Wednesday, 18 December.
It bans her from entering the town centre for five years except for pre-arranged appointments with support services.
The exclusion zone is the area between the A126 London Road, A126 Orsett Road, B189 Derby Road, Crown Road and Maidstone Road.Tags: Grays, Thurrock
