The victim further stated that the suspect walked in the front entrance of the store and kicked in one of the signs in the front entrance and also pushed the cart of one of the customers who was leaving the store. The victim stated that when she asked the suspect if everything is ok, he brandished a folding Knife at which time the victim immediately held the second door which gave access to the store shut. The suspect tried to pull the door open and started kicking the door.
