Then when they went to checkout, the woman said she told the cashier she did not know who the man was as the cashier rang up the items, and the subject bagged the items and ran out of the store as she paid, the report said.

The store manager and police watched surveillance of the incident, police said. The subject has not yet been identified. The report said he may have been with another man.
