On Sunday, September 20, 2015 at 8:26pm, officers responded to 3225 Park St. (M&D Market) in reference to a Panic Alarm. Upon arrival the clerk told officers he was robbed by 1 Hispanic male and 3 black males.
The clerk told officers a young Hispanic male and a young black male entered the store, while two other black males were out side and appeared to be lookouts.
The Hispanic male purchased a bag chips while the black male looked at the earring display at the far left end of the counter. The black male asked the clerk if he could look at earrings, then jumped over the partition door to get behind the counter with the clerk. The clerk tried to push him back, but he began to struggle with him. The Hispanic male crawled through the opening in the glass barrier, near the register at the right end of the counter and struck the clerk three times in the face with his fists. The black male was able to shove the clerk back behind the counter where he produced a pink stun gun and shocked the clerk with it three times in the left arm. Both males ran out of the store and fled on foot in an unknown direction of travel. The clerk activated his panic alarm and called police.
The Hispanic male was described as 17 to 19 years old, approximately 5`6″ tall, and slightly heavy set. The black male was described as shorter (approximately 5`4″ tall), 17 to 19 years old, and thin. No clothing description. Both suspects wore backpacks and one of the backpacks was red. The other had black straps. One of the suspects wore an unknown color hat. The clerk didn’t have a description of the two black males waiting outside the store.
