JSO: Man robs gas station, flees on bike

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – A man suspected of robbing a convenience store Sunday on Normandy Boulevard fled the scene on a bicycle, according to the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office.

Police are asking for the community's help to identify the man (pictured above).

According to police, around 8:25 a.m. Sunday, a robbery was reported at the Murphy's gas station in the 6800 block of Normandy Boulevard. The investigation revealed a man entered the business and stated, "Give it all to me" while lifting his shirt and reaching at his waistband.

The clerk told police he saw a bulge in the waistband that looked like a firearm and complied, giving the man money out of the register.

The man left and was last seen in surveillance footage riding away toward the east on a black, 20-inch bicycle.

Anyone with any information on the identity of the man is asked to contact the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office at 904-630-0500 or email JSOCrimeTips@jaxsheriff.org. To remain anonymous and receive a possible reward up to $3,000, contact Crime Stoppers at 1-866-845-TIPS.
