On todayís date, at approximately 10:41am, officers responded to the Seven Days Food Store, 2002 NW 1st Ave., in reference to a robbery that had just occurred. W/F Janice Campbell, 66 years of age, had gone into the store in order to make some purchases. Upon leaving the store, a black male wearing black pants, no shirt and with a cloth of some type tied on his head grabbed her purse.
