An employee at Okhi Dokie, 790 Barnett Shoals
Rd, told police that two black men came in the store around 7:30pm on October 10.
While one was at the counter, the other walked out of the store with a
bottle of juice. The man at the counter then left without making a
purchase. Both men got into a dark, hatchback-type vehicle.
The employee followed them outside to get the tag number. He said he
was standing about five feet behind the vehicle when the driver put it in
reverse and backed up. The employee tried to move out of the way, but
the vehicle struck him on his knee. The driver then left in an unknown
EMS responded and treated the injured man at the scene; he refused
transport to the hospital. One suspect was shorter than the other was;
the taller of the suspects was possibly wearing a black jacket. The
shorter male was the driver. The investigation continues.
