Strong arm robbery suspect sought
ST. AUGUSTINE, Fla. -- A male suspect is being sought in connection with a strong arm robbery Monday morning at a business on U.S. 1.
A 38-year-old woman told police she arrived at the Kangaroo store at 2800 U.S. 1 S. at 5:30 a.m. to prepare the store for opening when she discovered a man in the office area.
The suspect told the woman that he had recently lost his job and demanded money for his children's Christmas. The victim then went to the front of the store and gave the suspect an undisclosed amount of cash. The suspect escorted the woman back to the rear office and then he fled out the front door.
The investigation revealed that the suspect entered the store through the roof sometime during the early morning hours and waited until the victim arrived to confront her.
The suspect was described as a white male in his mid 20s to early 30s, about 5 foot 5 inches to 5 foot 7 inches tall. He was wearing a dark hat, gray plaid shirt, blue jeans and a white or gray shirt was covering his face. He did not display a weapon.
Anyone with any information can call CrimeStoppers at 1-(888) 277-TIPS (8477). You can also remain anonymous and possibly be eligible for a cash reward of up to $3,000.
