RADCLIFF, Ky. (WDRB)--A man is caught on camera in a brazen robbery. And now Radcliff Police hope the video and a new piece of evidence will lead to an arrest of someone they considered extremely dangerous.
This video is about as bold as it gets. "The video that you see is him coming back in the front door, with the alcohol in his hand, chasing the attendant again," says Bryce Shumate, with Radcliff Police. "He picks up a bottle of alcohol and throws it and hits her in the head."
Shumate says what the video doesn't show is the suspect attacking a female clerk the first time he entered the Liquor Outlet on Rogersville Road.
"The bottle was so thick that it did not break upon impact of hitting the attendant in the head nor did it break when it hit the ground," says Shumate.
After he couldn't get the cash register opened, the suspect slams it to the ground.
"There were some features that you could not see up close with the video," says Shumate.
So far no one has been able to identify the suspect from the video so a police artist made a drawing.
Shumate explains, "And with this drawing, it brings out some of the features that folks may not be able to see through that video that they might be able to recognize and identify this subject."
The video shows the suspect's hands are full and Shumate says that's how he left the store.
"He did get some cash from the store, got a cell phone from the attendant and some alcohol."
If you know who the suspect is, you can contact police at 270-351-TIPS.
