Police: North Texas Thief Caught In Waco, August 7, 2006

[Video of attack.]

A suspect wanted for two Grand Prairie crimes was caught on tape attacking a Waco liquor store owner, according to police.

The disturbing videotape shows a man who police identify as Tony Wayne Swinnie attacking 62-year-old Martha Jane Ezar with a full liquor bottle.

Ezar’s two grandchildren watched as the suspect jumped over the counter and took money from the register. Ezar is in fair condition at a Waco hospital.

Swinnie is now behind bars in McLennan County.

Swinnie is also wanted for an aggravated robbery with a deadly weapon in Grand Prairie.

And Grand Prairie police want to question him about a third attack- — this one at a local McDonald’s.
