An Augusta Mall employee was struck by a vehicle Wednesday evening after he tried to stop two shoplifters from fleeing.

A Richmond County sheriff’s report states that two women entered the store and concealed more than $600 worth of clothing around 5 p.m. at J.C. Penny. When an employee attempted to stop them from leaving the mall parking lot, the suspects hit the employee with their vehicle. The employee was struck on the right shoulder by the rear passenger door as the car was backing up, according to the report.

The employee told police the vehicle appeared to be a Chevrolet Malibu with a Georgia tag of HU88GI. A records check of the tag came back to a different vehicle, a 2003 Kia Spectra.

All of the stolen clothing was recovered, according to the report.

Crooks, Thugs, Criminals,

Crooks, Thugs, Criminals, whatere you wish to call these scum of the earth deserve everything they will receive one day. As for the employee, it is great to care so much but in these times, a discreet attempt to get the tag number without interference along with calling the police is probably the best thing to do. So many have NO RESPECT for anything anymore, including the life of another.

The ones that carry the

The ones that carry the thieving gene also have the panic "fight or flight" gene. When you go after them be prepared to shoot them because they will kill you for little or nothing. These lowlife thieving scum don't deserve to draw another breath. They are what happens when society teaches that everyone is "entitled" and you don't have to work and earn what you get. We are gearing up to turn out a lot more of these scumbags with the direction we are going.
