An employee interrupted the theft. The suspect was a white male, about 6’ tall, medium build with short brown hair. He wore large black sunglasses to partially block his face and he wore gloves.  The suspect fled in a red 90’s model hatchback with the license plate purposely concealed.  The suspect pushed and punched an employee in attempt to complete the theft. This use of force to complete the theft, turned the theft incident into a robbery.
