Other people in the parking lot intervened by blocking the shoplifter’s car – a silver Chevrolet Impala, possibly 2012-2014 model year. The driver, the white man with tattoos, began ramming the cars around him in an attempt to get out of the parking spot.

The suspect then ran over a Big R employee before escaping in the Impala.
