Kentucky police are searching for a shoplifter who made an extreme and dangerous getaway Monday. An undercover loss prevention officer had her eye on the suspect dressed when he grabbed a toolbox and ran from a Crescent Springs Home Depot. She gave chase, and wound up on the hood of the suspect’s car.
Security video shows the suspect stop the car abruptly, sending the security guard flying to the ground. Police say the suspect got away, and because his license plate was covered they have little to go on. The loss prevention officer is said to have a concussion and a bruised hip.
Police are looking for a silver car believed to be a Hyundai Accent.

The wife of the man who killed four people outside Britain’s Parliament last week condemned the attack Tuesday, saying she is “saddened and shocked.”
“I express my condolences to the families of the victims that have died, and wish a speedy recovery to all the injured,” Rohey Hydara said in statement released through London police. Khalid Masood’s widow added: “I would like to request privacy for our family, especially the children, at this difficult time.”
Police believe Masood a 52-year-old Briton with convictions for violent crimes who had spent two years in Saudi Arabia acted alone in last Wednesday’s knife and car attack. But they are trying to determine whether others helped inspire or direct his actions. The so-called Islamic State group has claimed he was a “soldier” responding to its repeated calls for attacks on western nations. Police say they have found “no evidence” of any links to Islamic State or al-Qaida.
Masood was killed by police after fatally stabbing an officer and running down pedestrians with his rented SUV. It was the deadliest extremist attack in Britain in 12 years. Police say there is no intelligence suggesting further attacks are planned, but police presence has been increased at some London sites and also outside Windsor Castle, one of Queen Elizabeth II’s favored residences. Thames Valley Police said Monday night that extra security barriers are being placed around the castle before the next ‘Changing the Guard’ ceremony planned for Wednesday.
“While there is no intelligence to indicate a specific threat to Windsor, recent events in Westminster clearly highlight the need for extra security measures to be introduced,” said assistant chief Dave Hardcastle.
ROBINSON TOWNSHIP, PA
A woman experienced a dressing room nightmare. Advertisement
On March 25 around 7 p.m., Heather Lipinski says she was trying on bathing suits in the fitting room at Macy’s at the Mall at Robinson.
“I did not even have the top put on fully, and I noticed this phone,” said Lipinski.
Lipinski says the phone stuck out of a pocket on the floor, so she reached down for it.
“I grabbed it, and he came underneath and grabbed it out of my hand,” said Lipinski. Startled, she peered out the door and told a nearby associate.
Lipinski added, “My biggest fear is he has me naked on his phone.”
Mall security showed her surveillance video. Lipinski says it shows a man rushing out of the dressing rooms and out of the mall to his car in the parking lot.
“The mall security guard came in and saw the guy and was like, oh that’s our guy,” said Lipinski.
Robinson Township police released a still image from that surveillance video hoping someone can identify him.
Lipinski shared her experience on Facebook to warn other women. Since Saturday, it has been shared more than 2,000 times. Another young woman reached out to Lipinski on Facebook to let her know the same thing happened to her. Hannah Chauvet described an experience similar to Lipinski’s – a cellphone peeking out of a pocket. The only difference is that she says it happened in a fitting room in the Forever 21 at the Mall at Robinson on Feb. 8, 2016. Chauvet just turned 18 but says she was only 16 at the time. Lipinski wants it to stop.
“I am not OK,” said Lipinski. “No, I am not going to let it go. I am not going to let it go until they find him.”
The Mall at Robinson released this statement: “The safety of our customers and associates is our top priority. As a company we do not comment or provide any additional information on ongoing investigations. Please contact the local Robinson Township Police Department with any questions.”
Macy’s released this statement: “TheMall at Robinson s top priority is to ensure a pleasant and safe shoppingexperience for all of our guests. We are cooperating with RobinsonTownship Police Department regarding an incident inside Macy s Department Storeon March 25.”
