A man carrying a purse and wielding an ice pick robbed the Walgreens on Cedar Springs Road early Wednesday, making off with $43.99 worth of condoms and $29.76 worth of makeup after threatening a manager.
According to a Dallas police report, the suspect entered the store at 3802 Cedar Springs Road in the heart of Dallas’ gayborhood at about 1 a.m. Because the suspect had stolen merchandise from the store in the past, a manager followed him. The manager observed the suspect placing several items into his black purse.
When the suspect tried to leave the store without paying, the manager approached him and asked him to empty the purse. After the suspect dumped out the purse on the floor, the manager said he was going to call the police. That’s when the suspect pulled out a large ice pick and pointed it at the manager and said: “Stay still, do no follow me or I’ll kick your ass.”
The suspect then grabbed the stolen merchandise and fled on foot. In addition to the Trojan natural lamb condoms and miscellaneous makeup, the suspect made off with two travel bags valued at $15.98, according to the report.
Sr. Cpl. Kevin Janse, a spokesman for DPD, said as of this morning there had been no arrests.
According to online records, it was the sixth aggravated robbery at the Cedar Springs Walgreens this year.
