The suspect quickly exited the store after he received the money from the register. OBPD says a customer tried to run after the suspect, but the customer lost sight of the man after the suspect ran into a wooded area right behind the store.
Officers responded, and a Volusia County Sheriff’s Office K-9 tried to track the alleged robber, but the man was not able to be found. The man is described by witnesses as a white man, about 6 feet tall, wearing a gray hoodie or jacket, a blue shirt, and a purple bandana partially covering his face. The man is approximately 30 to 40 years old, 170 to 190 pounds, and the clerk said the man’s teeth were so discolored, they appeared to be black, according to police reports.
