LUBBOCK, TX - Lubbock Police on Wednesday released an image on Facebook and Twitter with the question “Have you seen this man?”
A police report referenced by the LPD on social media said a man took merchandise from a convenience store without paying. A store employee confronted the man.
“[The victim] advised [the suspect] had a rock in his hand and he lunged toward him threatening to strike him with the rock,” a police report said.
What might have otherwise been a theft case instead becomes robbery because of the threat of violence. The police report said the store employee was not injured.
The incident happened on August 8 at 3:19 p.m. at the 7-Eleven convenience store at 2608 Avenue Q. An image was provided but not a physical description of the suspect.
Neither the police report nor the LPD social media posts said specifically what merchandise was stolen.
Anyone with information can call Crime at 806-741-1000.
