One employee was in Pierson Discount Groceries, 184 N. Center Street when a man who had his face covered with a mask entered the store with a kitchen-type knife in hand. The suspect walked behind the store counter and demanded money from the register while pointing the knife at the clerk. The clerk opened the register and then gave the suspect some money. The suspect then fled. The robber was described as a white man about 5’6” to 5’8” and about 150 pounds. He’s believed to be in his late 20s. He wore a dark green T-shirt with unknown printing on the back over a dark, long sleeve shirt; blue jeans and a baseball cap.

Anyone with information about the robbery is asked to call the Sheriff’s Office at (386) 943-7866 or Crime Stoppers of Northeast Florida, toll-free, at (888) 277-TIPS. Tipsters can also provide information by texting “TIP231 plus the message” to CRIMES. Anyone who provides information to Crime Stoppers will remain anonymous and can qualify for a reward of up to $1,000.
