San Ramon police investigators are trying to track down a man who tried to shoplift from Whole Foods Market and kicked an employee who confronted him, the department announced Thursday.
Police said the unidentified man walked into the grocery store at 100 Sunset Drive on Sept. 1 and attempted to steal items around 3:35 p.m.
When employees confronted him, he fought with them and kicked one of the employees, according to police, who said the employee did not suffer any visible injuries, other than being winded.
The culprit, who remains at large, is described as a white man in his early 50s, according to police. Investigators have not been able to identify him, and they posted a photograph of the man on social media Thursday -- a grainy still image pulled from security video footage.
Anyone with information about the incident can contact Det. Michael Pistello at 973-2781.
