At approximately 9am this Wednesday, January 2, 2019, a white male between the ages of 45-60 years old attempted to push a big screen TV out of the garden center entrance at Walmart, located at 7106 Knightdale Blvd, Knightdale, North Carolina.

As he exited the store, he was confronted by two employees attempting to verify the purchase. He brandished a handgun, pointed the gun at the employees, made threatening remarks, and left the store. The Walmart employees retreated into the store and were unharmed.

The suspect was last seen leaving the area, westbound on Knightdale Blvd, in a teal Honda CRV. He is described as having a grey goatee, glasses, and wearing a hat and heavy coat.

If you have information that will aid in the investigation, call 919.217.2261 (Knightdale Police Station).
