IRVING (CBSDFW.COM) – A store in Irving says it was robbed by an armed man last week while a pregnant cashier was working and now police are searching for the suspect.
Surveillance video released by La Nueva Puntada shows the suspect in the store with a gun in his hand. It appears he begins to demand money from the cashier while customers are still in the store.
