Panic alarm activated in M&D Market robbery

Panic alarm activated in M&D Market robbery

On Sunday, September 20, 2015 at 8:26 p.m., Beaumont Police Department responded to an activated panic alarm at M&D Market.

According to a press release, the clerk who activated the alarm told responding officers he was attacked and robbed by one Hispanic male and three black males. Two of the black males acted as lookouts while one black male and the Hispanic male initiated the debacle.

The black male at the counter, who appeared to be perusing an earring display, asked the clerk to look at a pair of earrings, then jumped over the partition door behind the counter. As a struggle ensued, the Hispanic male crawled through the opening in the glass barrier and struck the clerk's face three times with his fists. The black male produced a pink stun gun and shocked the clerk three times in the left arm before the suspects fled the scene on foot in an unknown direction. The clerk activated the store's alarm and called police.

The Hispanic male was described as 17 to 19 years of age, approximately 5'6", and slightly heavy-set. The black male was about the same age, but thin and about 5'4". While there is no clothing description, both wore backpacks (one being red) and one suspect wore a hat. There is no description of the two males waiting outside, and any information on stolen merchandise has not been disclosed at this time.

Beaumont PD is reaching out to the public for any information leading to the arrest of any of the suspects mentioned. Crime Stoppers can be reached at 409-833-TIPS.
