Cops in Egg Harbor Township say they are looking for a man from Atlantic City who is wanted for assaulting a worker at Walmart late last week in a "violent" robbery.

Authorities say the incident happened around 2 PM last Friday at the store on the Black Horse Pike and Fire Road.

According to a press release, officers at the scene, "made contact with the victim/Loss Prevention Officer. The victim stated she approached the suspect who was leaving the store with merchandise that was not paid for. The suspect assaulted the victim by pinning her to a wall by her neck and spitting on her."
