Fort Smith police are investigating a reported robbery on Christmas Eve at a convenience store.

According to the offense report, the robbery took place at around 8:30 p.m. Sunday at Pic-N-Tote Convenience Store, 1116 Grand Ave, a different location than the Pic-N-Tote involved in a robbery Dec. 20.

The cashier making the report stated that a Hispanic-looking man walked into the convenience store, picked up two 30-packs of Bud Light and walked toward the counter. The two packs of beer valued at $52 were reported stolen in the incident.

The cashier said he told the suspect that the business did not sell beer on Sunday, and the suspect walked out of the store with the items. The cashier then ran after the suspect and grabbed him by the top of his jacket just outside the store, the report states.

The suspect then dropped the beer and hit the cashier on the left side of the head, the report states.

The cashier said he let go of the suspect's jacket and chased him north on North 12th Street. He said he lost sight of the suspect in the area of North 12th and North G streets.

Fort Smith police officer Arthur Lewis watched the store surveillance video, which reportedly showed the suspect pick up the beer and take it out of the store without paying for it.

The suspect appeared to be a Hispanic man in his early 30s with short hair and about 6 feet, 2 inches tall. He was wearing a brown jacket and blue sweat pants in the surveillance video, according to the report.

Anyone with information about the incident or the identity of the suspect is asked to call the Police Department at (479) 709-5100.
