NATICK, Mass. -- An auto assault was caught on camera when a man tried to stop a car from pulling away, but he ended up getting taken for a wild ride.
A suspected shoplifter was behind the wheel and police are still searching for the driver.
The suspect drove away with a man on the hood of her car.
"The driving with the guy on the hood, that's unreal," said one man.
The incident happened in the parking lot of a supermarket on Route 9 in Natick.
"She's out of her mind. Why would you do that? I don't get that," said another man.
The surveillance video shows the suspect walking into the store, grabbing a cart and blending right in. Until, police said, she tried to leave with about $1,000 worth of food. She stopped and then struggled with the store manager, who ran after her.
"I commend him for taking his job so seriously. I have to say a lot of people don't think their job is that important," said a woman.
The woman is described as desperate and dangerous.
"It's almost like a hit and run, sort of, kind of, you don't actually hit someone and drive off. It doesn't matter who it is," said a woman.
Police released the video hoping someone would recognize her clothes, her mannerisms or her face and contact police so they can arrest her.
"Hopefully the perpetrator will be caught and justice duly served,” said a man.
Once she's in custody she'll be charged with larceny, assault and battery with a dangerous weapon, and driving to endanger.
