More details are now known about the robbery of a Hopkinsville convenience store from early this morning.
The official report from Hopkinsville Police says a black male wearing a mask walked into the Fort Campbell Boulevard Max-Fuel Express just south of Clinic Drive around 2:17 and wielded a knife.
The 25-year old female cashier working had been sweeping the floor when the man wearing camouflage Army fatigues showed her the large machete knife and demanded all of the store’s money.
The suspect destroyed and removed the store’s surveillance system before fleeing the scene, with part of the equipment later found in a parking lot. The suspect reportedly fled on foot northward toward Wal-Mart.
He got away with an undisclosed amount of cash and the destroyed security system is valued at $1,100.
