Witnesses rushed to help the victim until authorities arrived, getting a partial license plate for the vehicle connected to Tiger. 

Pleasant Hill authorities were then able to identify Tiger through the vehicle 

‘This case demonstrates the benefits we all experience when community members and law enforcement work together to find a quick resolution for cases such as this,’ Lieutenant Scott Vermillion shared. 

Tiger appears to be a repeat offender, having been arrested for a $37,000 jewelry heist from an Oregon Costco in 2015. He pleaded not guilty to the theft and conspiracy charges in relation to that incident, the Mail Tribune reports.
