The Clarksville Police Department is asking for the public’s help in identifying and locating an alleged shoplifter that hit a store employee with his vehicle as he fled the scene on Saturday, April 14th.
Police say around 2:45 p.m. officers responded to Kohls located in the 2800 block of Wilma Rudolph Boulevard after a loss prevention officer saw a male with a knife stealing clothing in the store.
When officers arrived on the scene, the suspect was seen running from the store with a loss prevention officer chasing him around the parking lot including the store’s assistant manager attempting to stop the man.
Police say the suspect managed to get into his vehicle, but hit the assistant manager with his vehicle as he fled, causing the employee to be knocked to the ground.
The shoplifter took about $300 worth of merchandise and police say the assistant manager sustained minor non–life threatening injuries.
Anyone with information about the shoplifting incident is urged to contact 931-645-8477.
