The El Cajon Police Department is asking the public to “be on the lookout” for a suspect who stole from a Home Depot and threatened a security guard with a knife.
ECPD said the suspect entered a Home Depot located in the City of El Cajon and stole several items from the store.
When he exited the store without paying, he was contacted by a security guard outside. The suspect then pushed the security guard and walked away. The security guard continued to follow the suspect when he then pulled a knife and told the security guard to “get back.” He then dropped the knife and fled in a white Ford Mustang.
The suspect is described as a male between 30 to 35 years old, 5’8" to 5’10" tall and weighs around 150-to-180 pounds.
