Cops: Fleeing sausage thief runs over security guard Saturday

Police are looking for an unidentified woman driving a blue Hyundai Sonata with possible Virginia license plates after she allegedly ran over a security guard after he confronted her for stealing sausages from a Route 58 grocery store Saturday evening, police said. 

The King Kullen security guard followed the woman into the parking lot about 7 p.m. and attempted to stop her as she backed out of a parking spot, according to a report.

The woman’s vehicle knocked the man to the ground, and ran over both of his legs before fleeing the scene, police said.

The man was transported by Riverhead Ambulance Volunteers to Stony Brook University Hospital with injures to his legs and hand, police said.

Detectives are investigating.
