Investigators release details on an aggravated robbery in San Juan.
The armed suspect was captured on surveillance video demanding money from an employee at a convenience store. The incident happened Tuesday at around 4:00 am at a Stripes located on 101 W. Nolana.
“The individual walked in with a knife and looked for the clerk. He found the clerk then he placed a knife on the clerk’s neck.”
After allegedly taking 27 dollars he runs out of the store. San Juan chief of police Juan Gonzalez tells Fox News the employee didn’t receive major injuries.
“There were just minor lacerations, just a few cuts that he has around his neck because the suspect did attempt to injure him.”
The chief adds there were several witnesses in the store before the incident.
“There was a couple of individuals that were at the store that had just exited the store so we are asking them to reach out to us.”
Gonzalez says they want witnesses to come forward with any information regarding the case.
“We just want to talk to them to see if they saw anything if the suspect got into a vehicle or not.”
The clerk informed officials the suspect appeared to around 5’9. In the surveillance video, you can see a tattoo on the suspect’s left hand.
