PCSO Robbery detectives are seeking the public's help in an armed business robbery that occurred at a 7-Eleven store in north Lakeland.

Around 11:20 p.m. on Saturday, September 2, 2017, the store clerk was in her car in the parking lot when she was approached by an unknown suspect who got into her car. The suspect grabbed her, and told her he was going to shoot her (he did not show a weapon). The suspect forced the clerk back into the store, where he took an undisclosed amount of money from the safe, then fled the scene on foot.

The suspect was described as a black male, 5'10" - 6' tall, approximately 230 lbs., wearing all black clothing and a mask covering his face. He was wearing black sneakers with white insignia, possibly Nike brand.

If anyone has information about this robbery, they are urged to contact Detective Walmsley at 863-298-6200.
