employees at the Warren Country Store, located at 281 Main St, Warren, VT. The

paying for a pretzel and punched another male patron in the face outside the

store. The unknown male then approached an employee who was sitting in her

car in the parking lot outside the store. The male ordered the female out of the

car and, when she refused, the male reached into the car, removed her seat

fleeing the area. The car was later recovered abandoned on Cobb Hill Rd in
