Taco Bell in Fort Pierce Damaged During Armed Robbery
A Taco Bell in Fort Pierce, Florida, was damaged following an armed robbery. The Fort Pierce armed robbery incident occurred on Saturday February 22, 2014. The robbery was allegedly perpetrated by a former employee at the restaurant. A man told police that he was sitting in his car with his girlfriend when the suspect reportedly asked him for a lighter. The attacker then entered the victim’s car. He reportedly assaulted the male victim and pointed a gun at him. Another man also is said to have entered the vehicle and assisted with the robbery. Both perpetrators allegedly took cash from the victims. The two perpetrators then reportedly left and attempted to make a quick getaway in their own vehicle.
