Not How She Expected to Start Her Day

This morning the employee of a local business arrived at work prepared to start her day, but instead of spending the day helping shoppers, she was stuck following the demands of a robber.

Around 8:30 a.m. the employee started her day unaware a suspect had forced entry into the business by prying a door open.  As she made her way through the store, the suspect confronted her, grabbed a knife from a display and demanded money from the safe.  The store employee complied with the demand and the suspect left the store on foot with an undisclosed amount of money.  The store employee was not injured during the crime. 

The suspect was described as an unknown race male, about 5’6” to 5’7” tall.  He wore a mask, gloves, black shirt and blue jeans.

Anyone with information about this robbery is asked to call the TIPS HOTLINE at 816-474-TIPS.
