Murfreesboro Police Looking For Suspect In 'Bold' Robbery
MURFREESBORO, Tenn. – Officials in Rutherford County were searching for the suspect who they said put a gun to the back of a convenience store clerk and demanded money. They believed the suspect was the same man wanted in another robbery.
Police said the armed suspect burst into the Mapco along Old Fort Parkway around 5:50 a.m. Monday.
Witnesses said the suspect jumped the counter and put the gun to the clerk's back, forcing him to the floor. He then cleaned out the cash register, told the clerk to stay down and fled the area on foot.
Several officers responded to the scene.
Officials said they believed it was the same gunmen who hit other markets in recent weeks. A similar robbery was reported last week at another gas station off Cason Lane, which intersects with Old Fort Parkway.
Investigators said the suspect was bold, hitting a gas station just around the morning rush hour.
All police knew was the suspect suddenly hits his target and was wearing a white bandana and gloves.
Anyone with information should call the Murfreesboro Police Department.
