C2-041821 Occurred: 5/18/22
Employees at Ace Hardware near 45th and Vine attempted to stop a shoplifter in their store. They say he took his backpack to the back of the store and attempted to leave with bolt cutters and a pair of gloves. Multiple employees contacted him and one even directed him on where he could pay for his items, but he walked past and out the door. When an employee followed him, he hit the employee on the head with the bolt cutters. The victim was transported by Lincoln Fire and Rescue to the hospital where he was being seen for swelling on his head and a broken cheek bone. If anybody knows who this suspect is, say it here!
