Tide to go

As he tried to leave the store, a woman attempted to stop him. The victim told police that the suspect pushed her and repeatedly hit her in the face. According to police, when an officer tried to arrest the suspect, he flailed his arms to prevent being put in handcuffs.

The victim ran after the suspect to get his phone back, at which point the suspect punched him in the face.
