HALLANDALE (CBSMiami) – A brazen broad daylight robbery has Hallandale Police officers working to find the suspects who held up the Metro PCS cell phone store on Sunday.
Employees at the cell phone shop near the 200 block of North Federal Highway told CBS4’s Travell Eiland that two masked men busted into the store at around 5 p.m. with a shotgun demanding cash.
“I just see this man jumping at me from the other side of the counter to my side with a shotgun and telling me to get on the ground,” said Sue Colina.
Colina said she was in the store alone at the time so she followed the robbers’ directions and while she was on the ground the suspects started looting the cash register.
That’s when her coworker showed up and the criminals turned the shot gun on him.
“When he heard me screaming he started to run away and one of the robbers were chasing him,” said Colina.
She said during the case her coworker fell and injured his knees and elbow but he kept running to a nearby business and called for help.
Colina said the thieves only got away with a small amount of cash.
“They had ski masks on they were young males. It was just a grab and go,” she said.
Security cameras cover almost every inch of the business. CBS4 was told the manager is working to get that footage over to police.
