Cape Coral Police Need Your Help Identifying Armed Robbery Suspects
(May 30, 2014)- The Cape Coral Police Department is asking for the public's assistance in identifying a pair of armed robbery suspects.
Yesterday evening at around 8:20 PM, Cape Coral Police responded to the Michaels located at 527 SW Pine Island Rd.
A Michael’s employee stated she was gathering shopping carts in the parking lot when a black or dark blue 4-door sedan pulled up near her and stopped. A black male between 20-35 years of age exited the passenger side of the vehicle and approached the victim.
The black male told the victim that she had to take him inside and give her all the money they had in the store. The black male raised a black, short barreled, semi-automatic handgun and pointed it at the victim, placing her in fear for her life. The victim hit her radio communications button and advised the other sales associates to contact police immediately. The black male then ran to the vehicle, entered the passenger side, and the vehicle drove away.
The victim stated that the black male was light-skinned and had a distinctive mole on his cheek. She advised he was approximately 5'10" tall, wearing dark pants and a black hooded sweatshirt. She added that the male had a short, shaved haircut. The victim did not get a look at the driver and nothing was taken. Detective Grau and Forensic Tech Buckner responded.
