Police are asking for help apprehending a man who took two chainsaws at knifepoint from the Home Depot in southeast Fresno in July.
The robbery took place after the suspect loaded the saws into a shopping cart on July 21 and left the store without paying, according to police Sgt. Mark Hudson. He was confronted by two security guards in the parking lot and reportedly pulled a knife and threatened to stab them. He was distracted by one guard and the second guard grabbed the cart and took the property back to the store.
The suspect is 5-feet, 10-inches tall and weighs 150 to 170 pounds. He is believed to be between 25 and 35 years old and has a tribal tattoo on his upper arm. Anyone with information is asked to call Detective Donnie Dinnell at 559-621-6334 or Crime Stoppers at 559-498-STOP.
