ARTICLE DESCRIPTION:

Safeway shoplifter makes getaway without any stolen items

A shoplifter turned violent at Safeway, located on the 2600 block of California Aveneu S.W., around 11 p.m. on Tues., Sept. 27. The suspect was a white male in his 30s, wearing a dark hoody and jeans. Witnesses said he was about 6’2” with a thin build, scruffy facial hair and a buzz cut.

The suspect had filled a shopping cart with food and a case of beer before making a beeline for the exit. Security ordered him to stop and the man dropped everything except the beer, continuing to make his way toward the door. A witness then tried to block the exit

The suspect ran and dropped the beers, which exploded on the ground. A Safeway employee confronted the thief, who then pulled a rope out of his pocket, which had a lock and a paint scraper tied to it. The suspect swung the small blade at the store worker but did not hit him.

The robber ran off, and police were unable to find him. Staff from the store will send the security feed to officers to follow-up.
