A masked man armed with a golf club robbed the Pretty Market on Middle Road, Garapan Friday morning.
No one was injured but the robber managed to run off with over $500 cash, two cartons of Kool “Green” cigarettes, and one carton of Kool “Blue” cigarettes.
The suspect was described as skinny, about 5'6” tall, about 140 to 170 lbs, and was wearing a gray mask, black long-sleeved shirt, a pair of black long pants, and black shoes.
Police officer Jason Tarkong said that police officers responded to the robbery incident at Pretty Market on Friday at 5:02am.
Tarkong said preliminary investigation showed that the suspect jumped on top and over the cashier counter.
Holding a golf club, the suspect shouted at the cashier, a 37-year-old female, telling her to open the cash register. When the cashier opened the register, the robber grabbed the money and three cartons of cigarettes.
The suspect jumped back over the cashier counter and exited the establishment. He then got inside the front passenger seat of a white Toyota Camry that was parked in the parking lot of the store.
The getaway vehicle fled south on Middle Road. Police said the car has a license plate ADO with the last three digits containing the numbers 6 or 4. The car had black rims.
Tarkong said the Department of Public Safety and Crime Stoppers Program are seeking help from the public about this incident.
“Please contact the Crime Stoppers hotline at 234-7272 should you want to remain anonymous. Chinese speaking and other language interpreters are available,” said Tarkong who is also coordinator for Crime Stoppers. Crime Stoppers pays up to $1,000 cash for any information leading to an arrest.
