ARMED ROBBER LEAPS INTO ACTION

Date: May 19, 2017                                                     PIO Number: 17-5-26
 

The armed robber doesn't waste any time launching his violent attack against a clerk at a Dania Beach convenience store.

Around 11:20 p.m. April 8, the suspect runs into the Stop N Go at 2501 Stirling Road and jumps in front of a customer. He waves a gun at the clerk through the open partition and demands cash. When the clerk doesn't move as quickly as the robber wants, he leaps through the opening and places the gun against the cashier's head. He collects money from a box, strikes the compliant clerk across the head with the gun and then orders the man to open the cash register.

The aggressive assault doesn't end there. The suspect drags and pushes the employee to open a door in order for him to make his hasty escape. 

The armed robber is seen on surveillance video wearing a ski mask, a black hoodie with red writing on the front and jeans. The suspect is believed to be about 5 feet 11 inches and 170 lbs.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Broward Sheriff's Office Detective Theophilus Woulard at 954-321-4553.
