Help sought in robbery of Brownlee Market

December 19, 2018

Fort Wayne police detectives are asking the public to help identify two suspects caught on camera during a robbery at Brownlee Market at 613 Oxford St. 

The two entered the market about 1:40 p.m. Monday, according to police. 

In surveillance video, the woman appeared to be casing the store. The man came in to the store about 30 minutes before the robbery asking to buy a “du-rag,” which the store doesn’t carry, police said. 

The man returned, pulled a semi-automatic handgun, demanded cash and left on foot. The robber was about 6 feet tall, black with a slender build and about 30 years old, police said. 

He wore all black and a red and green stocking hat. He did not cover his face or wear gloves. 

Police said the man was wearing a “very unique outer coat with patches or designs on it.” 

Anyone recognizing the two suspects is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 260-436-7867.
