WEST OCEAN CITY, Md.- Police are asking the public's help in identifying a shoplifting suspect accused of striking an employee with a vehicle while fleeing the scene at the Tanger Outlets in West Ocean City.

On Tuesday, Dec. 10, Maryland State Police and members of the Worcester County Bureau of Investigation were called to the Tanger Outlets to investigate an assault that had occurred.

Authorities said that during the investigation, it was found that a member of loss prevention for one of the outlet stores had attempted to stop a shoplifter from fleeing the business. Police said that the suspect then exited the store and was followed by the loss prevention employee.

According to investigators, when the loss prevention employee attempted to convince the suspect to return items that he had taken from the store, the suspect refused and entered a vehicle, identified as a newer model lime green "boxy" styled vehicle, such as a Kia Soul or Scion XB. Police said the suspect fled the scene, striking the loss prevention employee with the vehicle in the process.

Anyone able to identity the suspect is asked to contact Detective Jason Burnett at the WCBI at (410) 632-1111. Information can also provided to the Lower Eastern Shore Crime Solvers at (410) 548-1776, where a reward of up to $1,000 may be available for information leading to the arrest of the suspect in this case.
