Armed Robbery - Jimmy’s Auto and Convenience Store
On February 5, 2012 at approximately 10:34 pm, Webster Police were dispatched to Jimmy’s Auto and Convenience Store, (421 South Main Street), for a reported armed robbery that had occurred. Detective Gordon Wentworth and Officers Aaron Suss and Michael Lee responded.
Upon their arrival, it was determined that the masked suspect entered the store, assaulted the store clerk with a box cutter style knife and demanded money from the cash register. A witness’s attempt to disrupt the robbery caused the suspect to hastily flee on foot with an undisclosed amount of money. Several witnesses followed the suspect from the store and last observed the suspect in the Negus Street area.
According to witnesses, the suspect was described as a Hispanic male with a light-brown complexion, approximately 5’ 8" - 5’ 10" tall, having a skinny build and a partial goatee.
