St. John: On Jan. 21 at approximately 10:25 p.m. police officers were dispatched to Coral Bay regarding a robbery. Upon arrival contact was made with two victims who stated that they had closed up the Dolphin Market convenience store and were proceeding to their vehicles with the money from the day’s sales. As they continued walking towards the parking area, they said, a black male approached them, brandished a handgun and told them to hand over the bag, which contained an undisclosed amount of money. The male victim reluctantly cooperated and was struck by the suspect, he said. The suspect then fired a shot into the air and ran into the neighboring bushes with the store’s cash bag.
