The Madera Police Department is requesting your assistance in identifying the suspect of a robbery in this video that occurred at the Madera Avenue Market on June 11th. The male suspect wearing a red shirt and black hat, poured himself a fountain drink and appeared to loiter near the soda machine. The suspect is a young Hispanic male adult, approximately 20 years old, with a tall thin build. Once there were no customers in line, the suspect approached the counter. The suspect handed the store clerk cash for the soda. As the clerk opened the cash register, the suspect threw the fountain soda into the clerk’s face. The suspect used the distraction to reach over and grab cash from the register. The clerk attempted to close the register while the suspect was reaching into it, which caused the suspect to lose his grip on the money, resulting in cash falling to the floor. The suspect jumped the counter and picked up the cash and the remaining amount from the cash register. The suspect then jumped back over the counter and ran out of the store. The suspect has a visible tattoo on his right arm. Anyone with information on the identity of the suspect should contact Det. Sheklanian at 675-4248.
