Clerk Injured During Flomaton Armed Robbery

March 21, 2014

A store clerk suffered minor injuries during an armed robbery Thursday night in Flomaton.

Two black males armed with handguns rushed into the Dollar General on Sidney Manning Boulevard (Highway 29) in Flomaton at the store’s 10 p.m. closing time, according to Flomaton Police Chief Bryan Davis. The suspects escaped with an undisclosed amount of cash.

The suspects fled the scene on foot southward toward Roosevelt Street where it is believed they got into a vehicle.

No shots were fired, but Davis said one store clerk was injured during the incident.

The suspects were dressed in all black, including black hoodies, black pants and shoes. They had bandanas — one described as blue with small white pattern like snowflakes — on their faces. One was carrying a red bag that he demanded be filled with cash.

“We are looking for tips from anyone that may have seen someone matching the suspect’s description at any of the surrounding businesses¬† before the robbery,” Davis said.

Anyone with information should contact the Flomaton Police Department at (251) 296-5811 or call their local law enforcement agency.

    This is crazy!! What is wrong with people these days!! As a business manager I believe we all need tougher laws for these criminals!! Nobody has a right to steal from stores. All this accomplishes is driving up prices for law abiding citizens.

    at I thought it was a joke or something, till I was taken into the back room at gun point to find a security tape. I’m so glad I survived. You could tell it was their first time. I hope it is their last.
