Woman assaulted in Boost Mobile robbery


Shocking surveillance video tonight of a pregnant woman being punched by a robber.
It began when a man walked into the Boost Mobile store on Bayou Boulevard in Pensacola this afternoon.

The female clerk was alone in the store and without any warning, the thief hit her with a round-house sucker punch.
It's video that will make you angry.

The woman was taken to the hospital for treatment. We're told she suffered a broken nose, but she, and the baby, are doing just fine.
She will be staying overnight.

The owner of Boost Mobile now is now offering a reward to anyone who turns this man in to police.
We do warn you, this surveillance video may be a little hard to watch.

We blurred out the victim's face to protect her identity.

In this surveillance video, you can see the man talking with the store clerk, when he suddenly swings his arm and punches her in the face.
The blow so powerful, she falls on her back.
To make matters worse, the woman is pregnant.

"It's a shame. Justice is not ever good enough for a situation like that."
   
After punching her,  the man walks behind the counter and asks her how to open the register.
She complies with his demands. He then opens the register and begins taking cash..
Police don't know exactly how much money he took.

"It's a terrible world out there and we have to buckle down and make it right."        

The owner of Boost Mobile, Bob Wilson, was fired up when he found out what happened to one of his employees.
He says she was defenseless against this man.

Wilson says he will offer a 1,000 dollar reward to anyone who turns him in to the police.
"It's better that you turn him in than suddenly finding him. It's not gonna be right for him to be out there. He needs to be brought to justice."

Pensacola police say the suspect is a black male, about six feet tall with a thin build.
Anyone with information is asked to call Pensacola police at 435-1900.
