A violent and terrifying armed robbery at a popular convenience store and it happened right in the middle of the morning rush hour.

“It was Tuesday, May 28, 2019, and this was about 6 o’clock in the morning near 35th Avenue and I-10 near a Circle K,” says Phoenix Police Sgt. Jamie Rothschild.

The victim was mopping the floor when the two suspects walked in. Holding a knife in one hand, one of them grabbed her, forced her to the cash register and ordered her to open it.

Rothschild says, “While that’s happening, the second suspect goes behind the counter and starts to steal cigarettes.”

Investigators say from the moment the pair came in, it appeared they had a plan. The employee was not hurt.

Next, a shooting victim is now paralyzed from the waist down and the gunman is still on the loose. It happened on Monday, April 1, 2019, at a parking lot near 43rd Avenue and Thomas Road.

“It’s 2 o’clock in the morning,” says Rothschild. “The four victims were getting into a car to leave the area.”

Surveillance video shows a group of men with guns milling about the parking lot. One of those men opened fire on the car.

“In that car were several people and one of them was hit and ultimately paralyzed,” says Rothschild.

The shooter and his buddies took off in a 2016 White Dodge Charger.
