ROBBERY AT KANGAROO EXPRESS
On 12/12/13, the Kangaroo Express at 3232 W. Silver Springs Blvd. was robbed. The clerk was pepper sprayed and struck.
On today's date, 12/12/13, at approximately 2:51 AM, officers responded to the Kangaroo Express, 3232 W. Silver Springs Blvd. in reference to a robbery that had just occurred. Upon arrival, they found the clerk had sustained an injury to her head that was bleeding and required medical attention. The clerk advised, prior to being transported to a local hospital, that a person who appeared to be a black female entered the store, heated up two hamburgers and requested two packs of cigarettes for purchase upon approaching the counter. When the clerk turned back after retrieving the cigarrettes, the suspect sprayed her with pepper spray and then came around the counter and struck her in the head with an unknown type object. The clerk fell to the ground and the suspect opened the register and took the cash drawer. The suspect fled with the cash drawer, the back with the hamburgers and cigarettes in it and a soda she grabbed on the way out.

The suspect is still unknown at this time. The clerk received several staples for the laceration to her head and was still receiving further treatment at the time of the report.

Video surveillance was obtained and will be released as soon as possible.
