Unsolved armed robbery is 'Crime of the Week'

Police and the Juneau Crime Line are requesting the public’s assistance in finding a man who held up a pull tab shop in the Mendenhall Mall back in December.


The man was wearing a black mask at the time and still has not yet been identified, police said.

Previously, police said the suspect walked into the shop around 7 p.m. on Dec. 13, pointed a handgun at the clerk and demanded money.

Sgt. Scott Erickson said in a release that the clerk was scared for her life and gave the man an undisclosed amount of cash from the register.

Police described the suspect in a previous release as being a male in his mid-20s with a skinny build and standing about 5’4” or 5’5” tall.

Anyone with information regarding this or any other crime is encouraged to log onto the Juneau Crime Line at juneaucrimeline.com and report the tip. Tipsters are guaranteed anonymity and can be rewarded.

The Juneau Police Department and the Juneau Crime Line highlight a “Crime of the Week” each Friday to aid police investigations. The Crime Line is a nonprofit organization.
