Investigators are asking for the public’s help to identify a man who stole alcohol from a Safeway, punched a worker and fled on a Razor scooter in July.
The Spokane County Sheriff’s Office describes the suspect as black, 40 to 45 years old, up to 6 feet tall and 200 to 220 pounds, with black hair.
The man entered the Safeway, 902 W. Francis Ave., grabbed a large bottle of rum, and dropped it, shattering it on the floor, the news release said. He then grabbed another bottle, put it in his coat and walked out of the store. A security officer tried to stop him, but the suspect hit him in the face, according to a news release. The suspect fled to the east from the store on his Razor scooter.
The victim received minor injuries.
The Sheriff’s Office is asking anyone who can help identify this male, or knows of his location, to call Detective Mike Drapeau at (509) 477-6921 and to use reference No. 10095263.
