Brooksville Police seek suspect in Kangaroo Express robbery

BROOKSVILLE — Brooksville Police are looking for a man involved in an armed robbery Monday night at the Kangaroo Express store at 999 N Broad St.

Investigators said that the suspect, described as a white male wearing glasses and dressed in a plaid, long-sleeve shirt and a two-tone winter cap, walked into the store shortly after 10 p.m. brandishing a knife and demanded money from the store clerk.

He used a white T-shirt to cover his face. The suspect fled the scene with an undisclosed amount of cash in a newer-model white compact car. No one was injured.

Anyone with information about the robbery is asked to call the Brooksville Police Department at (352) 754-6800.
