'Moby Dick booze bandit' strikes again in Seattle; hits store clerk with bag of broken glass

SEATTLE -- Clerks at a Walgreens store are on high alert for a violent shoplifter who is still on the run.

Employees are afraid of the man they call the "Moby Dick booze bandit" because he is nearly impossible to catch.

Twice a week for the last two months, employees at the store at 145th and Aurora say this man walks into the store, steals liquor from the shelves, and runs out.

This latest theft was captured in the early morning hours of Oct. 4. When two employees confronted the suspect as he tried to exit, surveillance video shows him hit one of them with a bag of broken glass -- not once, but twice.

Take a good look at the suspect. If you have any information, please call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS. You can remain anonymous and could receive a cash reward up to $1,000 if your information leads to an arrest.
