WOODBRIDGE, Va. - A Burlington Coat Factory security guard was stabbed to death trying to stop shoplifter at Potomac Mills Saturday afternoon.

Prince William County Police are still searching for the suspect.

It happened around 2:30 p.m. Police said the victim and another loss prevention employee confronted the suspect as he was leaving the store.

"The confrontation took place right near the exit, kind of out into the parking lot," said Sgt. Jonathan Perok. "During that encounter, (the victim) was stabbed and sustained serious injuries. The suspect continued to flee on foot and crossed over to neighboring businesses."

He said police are now looking through security footage from the mall. Officers combed the parking lot looking for the murder weapon and any other evidence.

"That's pretty typical for a scene like this. We're just trying to figure out where the suspect ran," Perok said.

The suspect is described as a black male, last seen wearing a dark fleece jacket and light blue jeans.

Perok said the victim is in his 40s, and his family has been notified.
