After checking the area for the described suspect, Officer Michael Fisher spoke to the 33 year old female victim who was working in the store at the time of the Robbery and learned that the suspect approached the counter, threatened her with a knife and demanded money and cigarettes. The suspect, who managed to escape with only the cigarettes, was pepper sprayed by the victim prior to fleeing the store.
