An employee of a Waterford Township gas station was injured and hospitalized after an altercation with a patron, when he was dragged by the fleeing woman’s car.
The incident occurred on Aug. 29 around 7:15 a.m. at the Sunoco gas station located at 5775 Dixie Highway.
Arriving officers spoke with the 63-year-old victim who told them that an unknown white female came into the business and attempted to purchase several items with a credit card.
When he checked the suspect’s identification and it did not match the information on the credit card, the victim wrote down the suspect’s identification information on the receipt. The suspect proceeded to reach across the counter, grab the receipt and exit the store, according to a Waterford Township Police Department press release.
The victim followed the suspect to the parking lot, where he struggled to get the receipt back and became entangled in the suspect’s vehicle. As the suspect attempted to drive away, she dragged him several feet before he was able to break free.
The suspect was wearing a gray hooded sweatshirt and driving a dark blue vehicle with a license plate of CBS 4554 at the time of the incident.
The case remains under investigation. If you have any information or you know who this suspect is, contact Detective Greg Drumb at 248-618-6053.
