ST. AUGUSTINE, Fla. – The St. Johns County Sheriff's Office is searching for a man in connection with a strong arm robbery in the parking lot of the St. Augustine Outlets mall Monday evening.

Deputies said a 43-year-old woman who works at the mall was taking the trash out at 9:20 p.m. when a skinny black man, about 6 feet tall, approached her, punched her and stole her watch from her wrist.

The victim told deputies she saw a white four-door vehicle with dark tinted windows leaving the area at a high rate of speed. That vehicle is believed to be involved in the incident.

Anyone with information on the robbery is asked to contact the Sheriff's Office at 904-209-1458.
