Because Blockbuster isn’t doing poorly enough, a man robbed one this weekend in Newark. That’s Â just adding insult to injury! Have a heart man, this is a struggling American icon here.
Newark police are searching for a man who held up a clerk Tuesday night at a local video store.
The robbery occurred about 9:25 p.m. at Blockbuster Video in the College Square Shopping Center, said agency spokesman Lt. Mark Farrall.
A man armed with a small silver metal rod walked into the store and threatened the clerk with the rod, demanding money.
The clerk complied and handed over an undisclosed sum of cash, and the bandit ran out of the store.
A small metal rod? Was it a metal rod that shot bullets? Come on Blockbuster clerk! Doesn’t your $8.00 an hour make you want to risk your face for your beloved employer? Yeah, didn’t think so.
