No one enjoys having to get their receipts out upon leaving a store, but it's particularly galling when you're trying to steal something. That's exactly what happened at a Palmdale Walmart several weeks ago, when a greeter asked to see documentation for two bottles of alcohol that a person was trying to leave the store with, having not paid for them.

To make his getaway, the thief allegedly hit the greeter in the head with one of the bottles, causing lacerations and possibly a bone fracture, according to City News Service.

The suspect is still at large, and police are now seeking the public's help in finding him. Anyone with info is asked to call (661) 272-2446.
