VIDEO: robber puts victim in choke hold

The Mobile Police Department is looking for a robber who stole cash from a cell phone store and put the store clerk in a headlock.

It happened at a Metro PCS store on Saint Stephens Road in Prichard Wednesday, April 9.

Surveillance video shows the thief walking in ordering the store clerk to rummage through drawers and pull out cash.

“He claimed to have a weapon, demanded property from the victim and he put the victim in a head lock,” said Terence Perkins with the Mobile Police Department.

The suspect takes the clerk to the back where he puts the victim in another choke hold then heads to the back door and gives the clerk one more good push before running out.

“The suspect removed cash from the business and cash from the victim’s wallet,” Perkins said.

Store employees say the clerk is at home recovering. Luckily, he didn’t have any serious injuries.

Investigators say the suspect is 5’6″-5’7″ and weighs about 180 pounds. Call Mobile Police  Department if you know who the suspect is or have any information.
