Goldsboro Police Seek Assailant in String of Convenience Store Robberies

Posted June 2, 2007

— Goldsboro police hope a surveillance video can lead them to a convenience store robber they believe hit four stores in the last four weeks

Surveillance video from the most recent robbery at a Wilco gas station Thursday night shows the assailant grabbing the clerk and shoving her to the floor.

Clerks have been attacked in the three other robberies, but none of them were seriously hurt, police said.

The robberies began at the Kangaroo Store, in the 1600 block of East Ash Street on May 11 at 10:05 p.m. and the Eckerd Drug Store at the corner of Herman and Ash Street on May 15 at 9:22 p.m. The perpetrator returned to the Kangaroo station on 20 and May 29, police said.

Anyone with information about these robberies or the identity of the assailant should contact Crime Stoppers at 919-735-2255 or the Goldsboro Police Department at 919-580-4214.

    Disrespectful!???...It sounds like Ubangi is back under a new name.

    I hope someone is waiting for this assailant with a gun and a quick trigger finger.

    What does disrespect have to to with an armed individual robbing a store? Last I looked armed robbery was punishable by 7 years minimum, but there was no statute for "disrespect".

    The thug that was shot by the Highway Patrol on I-40 for robbing the store in Magnolia was owed no respect either. If you believe that disrespect should be a factor in lessening the severity of either of these crimes or treatment after the fact, then you have no concept of right-and-wrong.

    Why are convenience Store Survellance Camera's always so Blurry. Why don't they change the tape once in awhile? Would make it easier to identify the perp. And Dis-Respectfull Comments does not equal violence.

    I live in Goldsboro and when I was young (which was not so long ago hehe), I was robbed at a convenience store. For years they have talked of fixing all stores where they are closed in an area where robbers cant touch them. What happened to that idea? I know someone has to work at those stores but I never will again. I refuse to die so that someone can have cash for crack or whatever.

    r u kidding me! If I say something you find offensive, that would justify you attacking me and ROBBING the store?! Come on!

    I wish the convenience store surveillance systems had sound because how do we know the clerk didn't say something disrespectful to the patron that resulted in his aggressive action.
