About 1:20 a.m., two white males walked into the Circle K at the corner of Nine Mile Road and Beulah Road. Both suspects were dressed in all black clothing and were armed with knives, according to Amber Southard, spokesperson for the Escambia County Sheriff’s Office.

They demanded the clerk to hand over money and “other items” before exiting the store, she said.

There were no injuries reported. Surveillance images have not yet been released.

Anyone with information on the holdup is asked to call Crime Stoppers at (850) 433-STOP or the ECSO at (850) 436-9620.

    Or the clerks could just be allowed to carry a firearm for protection. Seems pretty easy to me

    Since Navy Federal built in that area, the traffic flow is almost constant. Off set shift scheduled warrant the stores being open all night. However – a protective transparent barrier between the tellers and customers is a good idea. Couple that with a remote door locking system and would be felons will think twice.

    Sounds like a great idea Howie and just how will that play out? Let’s see:

    Clerk: Excuse me. You cannot wear a hoodie inside the store, you have to leave.

    Bad guy: Oh gee. I guess I’ll just whip out this knife and NOT rob you since I’m not allowed to wear a hoodie inside. My apologies.

    I’ve read this before, HOODIES should not be allowed in stores especially this time of year. You almost know what the thugs are up to when they walk in with a mask on and hoodie.

    Depending on how much business that store does after 10pm, maybe they should close earlier when more customers are most likely present. Better to close early, than to have your employee shot and killed. The employee was lucky this time.

    I’m guessing the “other items” they demanded were behind the counter.

    Keep less than $50 in the cash drawer at night.

    Robberies like this could be prevented if the Judges would do their job and sentence them to a minimum of One Year of Hard Labor. Next time they wanted something they would work for it instead of threatening some persons life that was working to support their family.

    When the fruit is ripe and left to hang someone will come along and pick it.
    Police need to stay around that area since there is so much ripe fruit..
