Incident Report for Case #2013-354690

Incident Type


Incident Date

11/10/2013 - 1:42 PM


3721 E. Washington Ave. (Batteries Plus)


Male, black, mid 20's, 6', 210 pounds, short hair, facial stubble, wearing a dark blue fleece coat with buttons over a black hooded sweatshirt, dark shoes, and blue jeans with fancy stitching on rear pockets.


Female, age 30
Male, age 29


He had a hand in his pocket, and the clerk believed he might be concealing a gun. The robber ordered her to open the cash registers at Batteries Plus, 3721 E. Washington Ave. At the same moment, a male employee, who had just finished a break, came into the room.  This evidently surprised the Sunday afternoon criminal, as he immediately departed, empty-handed.
