Armed Robber Accosts Woman in Whole Foods Parking Lot on Raymond Road

Police say woman ran into store; suspect fled on foot toward grocery store garage.

At approximately 8:30 a.m. Sunday morning, an unidentified woman was approached by a male in the parking lot of Whole Foods Market who "pulled a knife on her," according to West Hartford Police Lt. Jeremy Clark.

Clark said the woman screamed and ran into the grocery store on Raymond Road. The suspect — described as a black male with no facial hair, in his 40s and wearing a dark overcoat, according to police — then fled on foot, heading toward the lower level grocery store garage.

Lt. Clark said police and two canines are searching the area. An emergency message went out to residents within a one-mile radius of the grocery store advising them to stay indoors, but the message was rescinded around 9:45 a.m.

If anyone sees someone fitting the description of the suspect, whom Clark said is considered dangerous, call 911.

I realize no one has ever attributed the quality of intelligence to those who commit armed robbery, but this assault was commited approximately 100 yards from the West Hartford Police Station.

It is funny when it is a rich area. I love to see how these cops and ridiculous people act when a person that shops at a place that don't care about there employees care so much about what happen to this lady. If it was in hartford like when my son,girlfriend and mother in law we're all held up at gun point next to the hartford fire station on sisson and west blvd. No news or a single cop showed up Oh I forgot he was coming school too withover 1500.00 dollars worth of electronics laptop,i-pod and cellphones. This happen in may 4 th of 2011u again not one single cop or news and it was three kids that did it. They punched my son 2 his girlfriend got punched twice also and his mother got a gun pointed to her face for her to up her cell phone all this while my son was being threatened to get shot in the back of the head laying face down. Now you tell me what is wrong with this picture...this is from a mad father about the Damn system ..
