Shopper robbed at gunpoint at dollar store
NORTH MIAMI, Fla. (WSVN) -- Police are searching for a pair of armed robbers who put a gun to a man's head while he was shopping at a local store.
"I thought, is this my time? Everything goes blank at the moment, you're just trying to make it through the ordeal," said the victim who, out of fear, did not want his face shown.
The man, who is a father of three girls, was at the Family Dollar store, located at 401 NE125th St., Wednesday night, buying laundry detergent when the two armed men approached him. "When I was at the counter, two gentlemen came through the door, one with a stocking cap on his face and another one with a hoodie. They both pulled out a Glock 9mm, and they robbed the place," he said.
Surveillance video captured the victim's frightening encounter with the thieves. "They put the pistol to my face, they demanded the cashier to open the cash register of the safe, she started getting hysterical and said she didn't have any money and didn't have the key," he said.
The thieves then turned their attention on the father of three. "He snatched the bracelet off of my hands and told me, 'Let me get that there' and had everyone basically in a panic," said the victim.
If you have any information on this armed robbery, call Miami-Dade Crime Stoppers at 305-471-TIPS. Remember, you can always remain anonymous, and you may be eligible for a reward.
