There, a manager said she gave the customer the correct change after the transaction, but the man “became irate” and claimed he was short-changed.
When the manager refused to give him more money, he pushed the 49-year-old woman to the ground and reached into the register, taking an undisclosed amount of cash, according to the release.
Witnesses tried to stop and restrain the suspect but he broke free and fled before police arrived.
