The owner then grabbed candles and hurled them at the suspect.
The incident happened around midnight two Fridays ago. Police say the suspect had a woman as his accomplice.
The pair is believed to have been driving a dark-colored Nissan Maxima. Police say the male suspect is in his mid 30s, about six feet tall, weighing 200 pounds with brown eyes and a beard.
