Case Synopsis: Robbery

On 10/01/2021, at 9:47 PM, an employee at a business located in the 9100 block of Mendenhall Mall Road, called JPD to report a robbery. The employee, who was also the victim, reported a male ran up to her while she was locking her business door and said "Give me the money, give me the bag" and threatened to shoot them if they didn't. The employee didn't see the man with any weapons. The employee told the man there was no money in the tote bag she was carrying, but she gave the man the tote bag anyway and he ran from the area.
