Body-Slamming Thief on the Loose
Just in from Broward Sheriff's Office:
A masked man brandishing a handgun threw a store clerk over a counter during a robbery Monday night as the criminal demanded cash from the register.
The clerk was not seriously injured, but detectives are anxious to catch the suspect before he hurts someone.
Detectives say this strong-arm (literally!) robber has hit the same Dixie Way convenience store in Pompano Beach four times this past month. But looks BSO doesn't have much to go on:
The robber appears to be in his early 20s, about 5-foot-10 and 180 pounds. He wore a black, long-sleeved T-shirt, long black shorts, black sneakers and an oversized black ski mask with large holes.
So. Average height. Average weight. No description of the face. Black clothes. Tell ya what: If y'all see a dude in a ski mask throwing your local grocery clerk 'round like a rag doll, that's probably the guy. Happy hunting!
