On 2/14/10, at approximately 3:30 p.m., a female suspect entered a business in the 1200 block of Howell St. The suspect walked around the counter to the open door to the employee area.

The suspect grabbed the victim from behind and told her that she had a gun and to give her all of the money in the till. The employee complied and the suspect then exited the store just as the employee’s boyfriend was entering.

The driver was investigated and released.
