Shoplifters assault vigilante Walmart employee

31 Aug

The Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office is seeking help in identifying two men involved in an attack last Friday on a Walmart store employee.

The attack took place at the Walmart at 13240 W. Coalmine Ave. when three shoplifters left the garden center pushing a shopping cart containing stolen merchandise, according to Mark Techmeyer, spokesman for the sheriff’s office.

The Walmart employee attempted to stop the trio when the merchandise in the cart triggered an alarm as they left through a store exit.

One of the men hit the employee in the head, knocking him face-first into the shopping cart and onto the ground, said Techmeyer. The employee was seriously injured.
