SHELTON, Conn. (WTNH)-- Those David Hasselhoff signs you see outside Cumberland Farms stores have been stolen locally once again, but this time the thief will face some serious charges.
The big question outside this Shelton Cumberland Farms...
"It's insanity. Over a David Hasselfoff sign? I guess people are still crazy over Knight Rider stuff," said Marisol Santiago.
But, these regular customers learned quickly this is no laughing matter as managers are tight lipped over why these Hasselhoff signs are gone.
"I'm really angry. They didn't even say anything to me in there. I asked why channel 8 was here, gas prices," said Tammy Heuser. When asked that's what they told her, gas prices, she said, "yes."
Unfortunately, police called News 8 there asking for you're help in tracking down whoever stole the signs around 1:15 this morning and critically injuring a 36 year-old employee.
"The black SUV pulled into the parking lot. Some time later, the employee observed the male get out and attempt to steal two signs. He was putting the signs in the back of his black SUV," said Lt Robert Kozlowsky, Shelton Police.
Police say as the employee approached the SUV hoping to get the signs back, that's when the SUV sped off. The employee was dragged and flipped over onto his head.
"People are sick today, they really are. You're gonna hit somebody over a sign with your car?" said Heuser.
Shortly after, Tammy Heauser came back to talk to News 8 after learning from a friend that the employee in the hospital is one of their favorites.
"He has a son. His mom works here. His girlfriend works here. I know the family well. I'm even more upset," said Heuser.
Police say there was a male passenger in the black SUV and a female in the backseat.
"If you know something you need to come forward. If it was your family you would want the same," said Heuser.
