CLAREMORE, Okla. - Video posted by Claremore police to their Facebook page that shows a woman being nearly knocked down by an accused thief at Lowe's is generating strong reactions.
In the video, a man can be seen walking up to a woman while pulling a metal cart with a generator on the back.
Police said the man started to exit through the lawn and garden section of the store without paying for an item. When the employee asked to see the man's receipt, he slammed the metal cart into her and and ran.
Claremore Deputy Police Chief Steve Cox said the employee did what she was supposed to despite being caught off guard.
Police said the man has a distinct tattoo on his neck, a devil with a pitchfork.
They are hoping someone will recognize him and call police.
