Im­pa­tient rob­ber pis­tol-whips clerk

Sun Sentinel Broward Edition - - OBITUARIES - — Staff re­port

The gun­man who stormed into a Da­nia Beach con­ve­nience store was fast, im­pa­tient and vi­o­lent.

Sur­veil­lance video re­leased by the Broward Sher­iff’s Of­fice on Fri­day shows the chill­ing in­ci­dent as it un­folded shortly be­fore11:30 p.m. onApril 8 at the Stop N Go store at 2501 Stir­ling Road.

Clad in dark cloth­ing and cov­er­ing his face with a ski mask, the rob­ber runs through the front door, leaps in front of a star­tled cus­tomer and points a hand­gun at the clerk be­hind the counter.

When the clerk ap­par­ently didn’t move fast enough, the thief is seen jump­ing through the counter’s open par­ti­tion and stick­ing the gun against the­worker’s head. Ac­cord­ing to the Sher­iff’s Of­fice, the rob­ber grabbed money from a cash box and smacked the clerk’s head with the gun while de­mand­ing he open the cash reg­is­ter.

Af­ter that, the gun­man drags the em­ployee through an open door in­side the store and leaves him there be­fore run­ning out­side as fast as he ran in.
