The Kroger store at 8415 W. Markham was robbed this morning by an unknown assailant brandishing a pistol. The Kroger is near the intersection of W. Markham and Rodney Parham.
Workers at the store told police that around 5:15 this morning, just after they'd taken the cash out of the store's self-checkout machines so it could be counted, a robber approached with a pistol and told a clerk to give up the money. The robber grabbed six money bags and fled on foot. The report states that Crime Scene wasn't called because the robber didn't touch anything but the money bags.
The police incident report in the case describes the robber as wearing black jeans, a black skull cap, long-sleeved black shirt and black tennis shoes.
