Not all armed robberies involve a gun.
We’re at the Shell station at 54th Avenue and Indian School Road. It’s Sunday, Sept. 16, 2012 at 5:00 a.m.
“Two suspects entered the store,” said Phoenix Police Sgt. Darren Burch “One of them is going to purchase a cigar, the other is buying some gum. At that point they took out weapons. One had an expandable baton and the other had a bat.”
No getaway car was seen.

SOLVED: Burch said the guy acted like a regular customer and ordered some food.
“Everything appeared normal until the time came to pay and the cash register drawer opened.”
That’s when the man pulled out a Taser and activated it so the cashier could see it’s electrical charge.
“He leaned over towards her, she backed-up and he took cash from the register,” said Burch.
She wasn’t hurt. He took off on foot.
