MIDLAND - A Midland man was arrested over the weekend after he ran over another man during a robbery.

The store manager at Fiesta Foods told police that one of his workers saw 51-year-old Ellis Warren leave the store with the stolen goods.

He confronted the suspect about the theft but Warren quickly got inside his car.

When the manager tried to take a picture of the thief, Warren hit him with the vehicle and took off.

The victim snapped a photo of the car's license plate which helped officers track Warren down.

Police also used video surveillance from the store to identify Warren as the suspect.

While he did confess to the robbery, Warren claimed that he couldn't remember running over the store manager.
