The employee told deputies a man in his mid-30s was seen stealing more than $300 worth of Polo clothing items from Macy’s in the Augusta Mall. The man was followed outside to his vehicle, where the employee said she tried to take back the clothes. That was when he punched her in the back of the head and pushed her toward his vehicle, Richmond County sheriff’s Lt. Robbie Silas said.
She was able to get away from him, so he backed up the vehicle and almost hit her, Silas said. The man was last seen driving east on Wrightsboro Road.
