Gunman wearing Aztec-pattern sweatshirt robs Deerfield Beach 7-Eleven

Armed robbery captured on surveillance video

DEERFIELD BEACH, Fla. – A gunman who wore a distinctive Aztec-print hooded sweatshirt was captured on surveillance video robbing a Deerfield Beach convenience store.

The armed robbery was reported about 10 a.m. July 11 at a 7-Eleven store on Southwest 10th Street.

Broward Sheriff's Office detectives said the gunman casually entered the store and handed the employees a plastic bag, demanding cash from the register. A customer who was inside the store was ordered to get on his knees.
