“She’s going to be okay, but she’s pretty shaken up,” said. Lt. Jason Wright of the Wayne Police Department.
The incident took place at about 7:30 p.m. on Tuesday, he said. She had been about to lock up the store when an African American man about six foot tall forced his way through the door, according to Wright. He wore a black hooded sweatshirt and had a black scarf covering his face.
“He forced her back into the store,” Wright said.
