LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

Lubbock Police are still looking for a man who attacked an off-duty DPS State Trooper Wednesday night at a grocery store.

DPS says Trooper Katrina Jones was off duty working security for the United Supermarket on 4ths and Slide. Around 10 p.m. Jones spotted a man trying to shoplift and confronted him as he walked out the store.

"When she confronted the Hispanic male at the door to take him back into the store to talk to him, he turned around with one of the items and struck her in the face," said John Gonzales, Lubbock DPS public information officer.

Jones received cuts on her face when her glasses broke from the hit. The man then ran off and jumped the fence behind United.

Police, DPS and Sheriff deputies blocked off the area and set up a perimeter, but the suspect got away. The suspect in the attack is described as a Hispanic male in his 20's. He was last seen wearing a black cap and shirt and red shorts.

If caught the man will face charges of shoplifting, assault on a public officer and evading arrest.

If you have any information on this incident, you are encouraged to call Crime Line at 741-1000.
