PEMBROKE PINES, Fla. (WSVN) — Cameras rolled as three men held up a Pembroke Pines convenience store, Monday, stunning customers and employees with fear.
According to police, on Monday, at 3:40 a.m., three men stormed a 7-Eleven convenience store, located at 1696 South Palm Ave.
One of the men stayed at the front of the store and patted down an innocent customer in search of any valuables, while the other two men stormed into the store and headed straight towards the back of the store. The two men then demanded cash from the two employees who were working behind the counter as the other man threw the customer onto the ground, seeming to demand for valuables or cash.
Calvin Higgins, who lives nearby, was shocked by the news of the robbery. “Pembroke Pines used to be a really good neighborhood,” he said. “You know, I don’t know what happened to it. I guess these kids are listening to good music and getting into gangs, but I grew up around here, and it never used to be like that. It’s a shame.”
“Teenagers just don’t have any respect for anyone or anything,” said customer Maenina Uptgroh.
Another customer, Alice Walker, said, “I don’t like it. I know it’s being done, but there’s nothing we can do.”
All three of the men were wearing gloves and had their faces partially covered with bandanas. All three men were wearing sneakers.
At one point, one of the robbers who was wearing a gray shirt looked directly at the camera. Therefore, police hope he can be clearly identified.
The subjects made off with an undisclosed amount of cash.
Now, police are asking for the public’s help in identifying them. If you have any information on who these three men are, please call Broward County Crime Stoppers at 954-493-TIPS. Remember, you can always remain anonymous, and you may be eligible for a $2,500 reward.
