Original Story: Redding police are asking for the public's help identifying a woman who allegedly punched a grocery store manager who was confronting her about shoplifting.
The incident happened around 4 p.m. last Friday at the Sav Mor on Westside Road. A store manager told police she saw the suspect stuffing her with items from the store, so she asked to inspect the bag.
The woman refused to let the manager look in the purse, and proceeded to load the items into a red Ford Explorer.
Thinking a theft was in progress, the store manager walked outside and took the photo seen above. Right after the photo was taken, the suspect reportedly punched the manager in the face.
The suspect fled the scene on foot, while another person drove away in the Ford Explorer.
The suspect is described as a white female in her 20s, 5 feet and 4 inches tall, 120 pounds, with blonde hair. The photograph indicates that she has a tattoo on her left arm.
