A Kroger employee was slashed in the face by a shoplifter early Saturday, police say.
The woman was cut after she confronted the man between 2 and 2:30 a.m. at the Bryan Station Road store, said Lexington police Sgt. Bryan Jared.
The woman, who was not identified, was taken to University of Kentucky Chandler Hospital.
Jared said he did not know how badly the employee was injured, but WKYT-TV reported that she suffered a 7-inch cut.
The shoplifter was taking a cartload of beer from the store when the employee asked to see his receipt, the station said.
Kroger is offering a $10,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of a suspect. No one had been arrested as of Saturday night.
