The clerk complied with the suspect’s demands and was unharmed. The suspect exited the store on foot. An officer in the area saw a person wearing clothing that matched the suspect’s description exit the woods and enter a truck parked up from the business. Once in the truck the individual began to take off clothing then ducked down in the seat.
