DAVIE, Fla. - Police are still searching for a man and woman who jumped a store counter and attacked a Walgreens liquor store clerk during a robbery, Davie police said.

Just after 8 p.m. Saturday, three people entered the Walgreens liquor store on State Road 84 in Davie, surveillance footage showed.

About 15 minutes later, a man is seen approaching the clerk and asking him for something behind the counter. A short time later, the man jumps over the counter. 

As the clerk reaches for his radio, the man assaults the clerk. A woman in a black dress jumps the counter to assist the man in the struggle. As that happens, a third person, identified as Randazia Bryant, 22, leaves through the front of the store with four liquor bottles, video shows.

Both the man and woman jump back over the counter and leave the store. They can each be seen attempting to steal liquor bottles as well.

Shortly after the call, Davie police officers arrested Bryant at Southwest 136th Avenue and Financial Boulevard. Bryant refused to stop running from officers, at which point a Taser gun was used, an incident report said. The estimated cost of the stolen bottles was $230.

Officers are still looking for the man and woman who initially jumped over the counter.

The same Walgreens was the scene of another unsolved robbery. In late September, a man entered the same store and robbed a clerk. Davie police officers believe the crimes are unrelated.

Anyone who recognizes the man and woman are asked to contact Broward County Crime Stoppers at 954-493-TIPS.
