On Wednesday, November 8, a man entered the Tobacco Hut at 595 Southpark Boulevard and asked the clerk for a carton of Newport cigarettes. Once the man received the carton, he pulled a knife from under his sweatshirt and demanded the store’s money. The clerk complied, and the man left the area in a gray sedan.
The suspect was described as a Hispanic male. He was wearing a red Puma sweatshirt, black pants and black sneakers.
