January 19, 2013, Armed robbery 1705 ABE, Aaron’s Rent-to-Own.

At approximately 10:50 officers were dispatched to 1705 ABE, Aaron’s Rent-to-Own on an armed robbery. The manager, WM 45, walked out to his private vehicle approximately 20 feet from the front door to take the bank deposit to the bank.  A BM suspect approached him and pulled a large handgun with “an 8 inch barrel” and demanded the money.  The victim reacted to the suspect by fighting back.  The suspect struggled with the victim, striking him in the head and face several times with the gun, and also started choking him from behind.  The victim was able to get to the front door of the store, opened it and threw the bank bag back inside the business.  The suspect ran west and then north toward the Lakeview apartments and was reported to have got in a vehicle with possibly 3 other subjects.  The vehicle was described as an older Olds 88 or 98, white in color.
