The Mineral Wells Police Department needs help identifying this suspect. This gentleman was confronted by a store clerk at Dollar General when he tried to shoplift a small item. He kept the item, pushed her aside and ran out the door. The assault makes this offense a Robbery instead of a Class C Theft. Any assistance from the public in positively identifying this man would be appreciated.
