Police investigate armed robbery

Cameron Police are investigating an armed robbery at Sunny’s Food Mart Monday night.
The incident occurred at about 11:21 p.m. Monday when a masked man armed with a small revolver forced an employee to open the cash register at the store, located in the 900 block of North Travis, according to a statement released by Police Chief Randy Dixon.
The employee was outside on the store property cleaning the parking lot when the armed robber grabbed him and forced him into the store.
“The suspect and the male store employee struggled for a time inside the store, with the employee using good judgment and refrained further fighting with the suspect,” Dixon said, adding that “the suspect took a quantity of cash and fled behind the store towards the Little River-Cameron Hospital.”
The employee told officers the robber wore a Halloween mask “resembling a dead person/zombie,” a black hoodie, black sweat pants and red underwear, similar to a Batman costume.
Dixon said the investigation is ongoing and there is video from the store’s security cameras. Anyone who might have seen the suspect fleeing the area should contact police.
