Robbery of Kangaroo Convenience Store


(Fayetteville, NC) – On Saturday, November 11, 2017 at approximately 3:00 am, officers with the Fayetteville Police Department responded to a report of an armed robbery at the Kangaroo convenience store located at 2001 Skibo Road.


The preliminary investigation revealed that the suspect walked into the convenience store and grabbed a pack of crackers before proceeding to the counter to assumingly complete a purchase.  Once the clerk opened the register to complete the transaction, the suspect produced a knife and demanded that the clerk leave the cash register open.  The suspect stole an undetermined amount of money from the register along with packs of cigarettes and then fled the business. 


The suspect was described as a Black Male, 40 to 50 years of age, and 5’06 to 5’08 in height and had a scruffy beard.  The suspect was described to have worn a brown hooded sweatshirt, light in color denim pants with a design on the back pockets, black shoes and a navy blue toboggan.
