The incident took place at roughly 7 p.m. on Monday, July 11th, 2022 when a yet-to-be-identified man began his trip to the Home Depot store with what appeared to be some leisurely shopping, gathering numerous items which have been estimated to have been worth hundreds of dollars.

However, it quickly became apparent that the man wasn't planning on paying for his items as while on his way out of the store, the man was stopped by employees and confronted about the items he was attempting to carry out.

It was at this point that the man took out a canister of pepper spray and a large knife, both of which he threatened the employees with before fleeing the scene.
