(WMC-TV) – Surveillance video captured at a grocery store shows employees trying to use shopping carts to stop a knife-wielding thief.

Employees at the Save-A-Lot store on South Third Street told police a man entered the store and tried to leave with merchandise he did not pay for.

As he was detained, the suspect bent over to adjust his pant leg and came up with a knife. In the surveillance video you can see the suspect waving the knife around as employees try to use shopping carts to keep him from running away.

The suspect was able to get away before officers arrived on the scene. No arrests have been made in the incident.
