REDDING, Calif. - A Dutch Bros employee was carjacked and burglarized while she was working at the location on the intersection of South Market and Grange Streets. 

Redding Police say at around 8 a.m., the carjacker entered the back door of the Dutch Bros and grabbed the victim's wallet and car keys. 

Two other employees tried to stop the man as he was stealing the car, but he punched one of them in the face and proceeded to flee on foot. 

Police found and identified the man shortly after as 25-year-old Devan Nelson.

Nelson had changed his clothes to attempt to conceal his identity before officers caught him. 

Several Dutch Bros employees said that Nelson was the one who burglarized the employee. 

He was transported to the Shasta County Jail where he was booked for carjacking and burglary.

The employee who was punched required no further medical treatment.
