NARRATIVE: On October 14, 2013 at 0754 hours the Maryland State Police responded to the Parsonsburg Quik Stop for a reported attempted robbery. Troopers arrived and learned a lone AA/M had entered the store wielding a knife and demanding money. See description below. The clerk made an action to reach below the counter and it is believed the suspect fled at that point believing an alarm had been pushed. He left taking nothing.
Same date at 0825 hours the Wicomico Sheriff’s Office received a 911 call for a robbery at Vintage Beverage on Snow Hill Road at Shiloh Street.
