The employee told police the store’s manager was on his way out, but spoke to the male and told him to “stop.”

The juvenile took off running, then several minutes later the manager came back into the store with the juvenile.

According to the employee, the manager and juvenile were standing next to the glass pane counters to the left of the entrance. The employee stated the manager had a hold of the juvenile when out of nowhere the juvenile kicked a section of the glass.
After the manager told him to stop kicking the glass, the juvenile kicked the same area again and the glass shattered, the employee told police.

According to the police report, the manager let the juvenile go after the glass shattered. He then fled north on Main St.
