Re: Aggravated Robbery Suspect Sought

 

On Tuesday, July 22, 2015 at 10:00pm, Texarkana Arkansas Police responded to the Country Store, 1300 block of East 35th Street, in reference to an aggravated robbery.

When officers arrived on scene, they located the store employee, who advised an unknown black male, wearing all black clothing and a ski mask, entered the business and approached the counter demanding money from the register while displaying a handgun. The store employee advised officers that he heard a single gunshot as he ran into the office for safety and to call 911. The employee said as he was speaking with 911 operators when he observed the suspect on the security camera attempt to gain entry to the cash register behind the counter. After the suspect was unsuccessful in gaining entry to the cash register he then fled the eastward on foot.

Anyone with information is strongly urged to contact Texarkana Arkansas Police at 903-798-3154 or the Texarkana area CrimeStoppers at 903-793-STOP.
