Windsor Police are investigating a robbery after a suspect stole a quantity of meat from the west side Metro store at 11:50 pm last night.
The night manager told police that he had observed a male suspect in the meat section of the store. The manager watched the suspect as he grabbed four steaks from the meat counter and then place them inside his winter coat, and then the suspect walked directly to the front of the store and passed the checkout counter without making any attempt to pay for the meat.
The manager followed the suspect and as they reached the exit doors to the store, the manager confronted the suspect demanding to see a receipt for the merchandise still concealed in the suspect’s coat.
At this point, the suspect punched the manager in the face causing him to fall to the ground.
The suspect fled on foot to the parking lot and was followed by a witness who observed the assault. The store manager did not require medical treatment as a result of the assault.
The suspect was seen getting into a grey four door vehicle. The witness was able to obtain Ontario licence plate # BBBR 166 as the vehicle sped away through the parking lot toward Tecumseh Road.
The suspect is described as a white male, early 20’s, 6′ tall, medium build, with long curly red hair and a full red beard. He was wearing a grey winter jacket and jeans.
Anyone with any information regarding this robbery or the identity of the suspect is asked to call Windsor Police Investigations at 519-255-6700 ext 4830 or anonymously to Crime Stoppers at 519-258 TIPS (8477).
