Richmond County authorities are asking for assistance identifying a shoplifter who punched and attempted to run over a loss prevention employee.

According to an incident report, the man was observed stealing clothing from Macy’s at the Augusta Mall on Tuesday afternoon.

The loss prevention employee told deputies she attempted to take the items back outside the store but was punched in the head by the suspect.

Deputies said the suspect then pulled the woman to his car in the parking lot before she was able to escape.

Yeah, I really think this

Yeah, I really think this fits the definition of kidnapping. He pulled her out to the parking lot. At the least, he was attempting kidnapping by trying to put her in his car. This guy should get life. He would have probably killed her.
