Puyallup Police are looking for help identifying a man they say punched a Fred Meyer employee while attempting to flee with a cart full of stolen merchandise.
When confronted by a loss prevention worker at about 12:20 p.m. on Feb. 27, the man allegedly punched her in the back and stomach after struggling over the cart, said Puyallup Police Capt. Ryan Portmann. The man reportedly made off with a jacket as he fled the store on the 1100 block of North Meridian Avenue .
Security cameras captured images of the man, who police describe as a 5-foot-11, 180-pound Pacific Islander in his early 20s. His black hair was tied back in a pony tail and the sides of his head appeared to be partially shaved.
Police ask anybody with information about the suspect to call 253-770-2243 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
