Police: Man Steals Big-Screen Television, Pulls Out Hunting Knife At Wal-Mart

RENO, Nev. (AP) — Reno police are looking for a man who reportedly stole a big-screen TV from a Wal-Mart and then pulled a hunting knife on employees who confronted him about it.

Authorities say the incident happened about 5 a.m. Thursday at the store on Kietzke Lane.

Police say the suspect found a 55-inch TV inside the store, then took it outside without paying. Officials say employees approached him outside the store, where he brandished a 10-inch knife and threatened the employees.

The employees weren’t injured.

Police say the TV was found several hundred yards away from the business, but the suspect got away.

He’s described as a six-foot-tall black man with a mustache and goatee, and was last seen wearing a black baseball cap, a black sweater, and blue jeans.
