noon, a man walked into
Cheap Joe's at 1200 Corporation
Parkway. He ask- ?::
ed the clerk about flare- ? .
legged jeans. She told him Suspect omposi e
that the store did not sell those types of jeans. The man
then went outside but began to walk back and forth in
, front of the store while looking inside.
The individual proceeded to re-enter the store and
again to inquire about flare-legged jeans. When the clerk
again stated that the store had no such jeans, the man
said, "OK, go back to the register." He then produced a
small-barreled brownish handgun and ordered her to give
him all the money in the register.
After ordering the clerk to go into a back room, the
man escaped in an unknown direction with the store's
money. He is also believed to have been hanging around
the Showroom at Parkway Plaza earlier in the day.
l ne suspect is described as a slender-built black male,
about 25 to 30 years old, 6-2 to 6-4, weighing about 160
pounds. He had a dark complexion; a short, neat Afro;
and a full, curly beard, but no moustache. He wore
square-styled glasses with thick lenses, brown penny
loafers, a waist-length black zip-up jacket, and tan or
gray tweed pants.

violent attacks by white racists upon blacks should be a
concern of the state and national governments?"
