Robbery At Melbourne Gas Station

MELBOURNE, Florida -- The Brevard County Sheriff’s Office is currently investigating the strong-arm robbery of the Chevron Gas Station/Convenience Store located at 1600 North Wickham Road in Melbourne, Florida. 

Around 9:10 p.m. on November 10th, a white male suspect wearing a grey shirt, blue jeans, and a black baseball cap with the word “Chicago” on the front and decorative stitching on the bill, entered into the store and demanded money from the store clerk. 

Sheriff's deputies say that there were no weapons implied or seen.   The suspect then allegedly physically confronted the clerk and escaped with cash, lottery tickets, and the victim’s wallet.  

The suspect is described as standing between 5’9” to 6’00” tall, and weighing approximately 170 pounds.  He has a slim build and a full beard.  He was last seen on foot moving southbound on Wickham Road from the store parking lot.
