Police are looking for this felon. He should not be hard to find. He is clearly pictured and has a giant “Islam” tattoo on his chest. The latter distinguishing mark would not have been known except that the man pulled up his shirt to ask that the store clerk not call police on a “fellow Muslim.” In addition to the picture, the man’s religion, he is also apparently an iPhone lover.
The felon store $780 from a Jamaica cellphone 111 Wireless and More. He brandished a small black revolver. He told the worker that “No one needs to get hurt. Just give me the money.” The man demanded more cash and iPhones but the worker said that the store did not have any iPhones. That is when the robber brought the conversation around to religion and appealed to the worker to be a good Muslim in not calling in the crime: “We are both Muslim. We are supposed to support each other. Please don’t call the police and report me.” It is a curious claim for piety in the course of a crime. In Saudi Arabia, they cut off the hand of a robber in compliance with Sharia law.
The suspect shook hands with the clerk before leaving but he did add a non-religious element to the demand that the worker keep quiet: “Please don’t report me. I’m going to come back again.”
It is not clear if the threat was the reason, but the clerk quit shortly after the incident out of safety concerns.
Police are searching for the man who conveniently left the evidence below:
