SCARBOROUGH, Maine — Police are on the lookout for a man they say tried to walk out of Walmart with a cart full of groceries last month and injured a greeter.

Jamie Higgins, a crime analyst for the Scarborough police department, said the incident took place shortly after noon on July 19.

When the greeter asked to see the suspect’s receipt, he grabbed her wrist and left the scene, and the cart, behind. Surveillance evidence from the scene shows the man fleeing in a maroon Ford Explorer, police say.

Higgins said this incident isn’t related to the man who allegedly used a camera to look up several shoppers skirts. That suspect also remains at large.

Anyone who has seen the suspect is asked to contact Scarborough police at 883-6361.
