Bronson Armed Robbery

March 13, 2015

On March 12, 2015 at
approximately 9:30 PM, Deputies from the Levy County Sheriff’s Office responded
to a reported armed robbery near the Post Office in the Town of Bronson.  The elderly white male victim reported that
he stopped his vehicle near the outside mail box while making a phone
call.  An unknown black male subject
entered the Victim’s vehicle on the passenger side and immediately put a knife
to the Victim’s throat. 

The robber demanded that the
Victim turn over his money and threatened to kill the Victim if he did not
cooperate.  The subject stole several
hundred dollars in U.S. Currency from the Victim.  The robber then demanded that the Victim
drive him away from the crime scene.  The
Victim complied and after driving a short distance, the robber exited the
vehicle with the Victim’s cash and vehicle keys. 

Deputies responded and attempted
to locate the suspect. Corporal Kevin Kinik deployed his K-9 “Zombie” and was
able to track the suspect approximately one mile before losing the trail near Main Street and
State Road 24. 

LCSO reminds the Public to always be vigilant and aware of
their surroundings.  LCSO urgently needs
assistance in locating this dangerous offender before he can strike again.
