Lufkin, Texas (News Release) - Security videos of theft are so common that some see taking the property of another as a petty crime and not worth a second thought. In fact, theft is a crime, it has a major impact on our lives, and we have to stop thieves but this week’s Crime of the Week is more about being evil than it is about stealing.  

About 9:00 p.m. Sunday, August 28, a criminal entered the Dollar General store on Kurth Drive in Lufkin prepared to commit a robbery. With his head and face covered and a hammer in his hand, the man leaped onto the counter and demanded the employee open the safe. The employee said he had no way of opening the safe and the man jumped down from the counter and looked around.

After a moment of contemplation, the man walked back toward the counter as though he would leave. You can imagine that the employee felt relieved; it seemed the incident was over as quickly as it began - it wasn’t. Not satisfied to leave without fulfilling his need to take, he decided to punish the employee. Using the hammer, the man bashed the employee’s head and then jumped back over the counter and fled out the door.

His actions were captured by the store’s video system and can be viewed at www.639TIPS.com and www.facebook.com/DETCS.

This criminal has no regard for the life of others and Crime Stoppers wants your help identifying him so that no one else is subjected to his violence.

If you can solve this crime, call Crime Stoppers at (936) 639-TIPS or submit a tip at www.639TIPS.com. Crime Stoppers calls and tips are anonymous and the first, most accurate tip that leads to an arrest may be eligible for a reward.
