From the Mint Hill police:
On Friday, December 12, 2008 at around 10 pm, Mint Hill Police Officers responded to Tienda El Amigo located at 4709, Suite 112, Margaret Wallace Road in reference to an armed robbery. Officers spoke with an employee who stated he closed the store. Upon exiting the store a Hispanic male with a dark hoodie pointed a gun at his head. The Hispanic male demanded the employee to go back inside the store and give him all the money. The Hispanic male then told the employee to lay down. The Hispanic male then proceeded to duck tape the employees wrists behind his back and his ankles together. Approximately five minutes later the employee heard the business door open and another unknown male came into the business and watched the employee while the other Hispanic male looked throughout the store.
If you have any further information, please contact the Mint Hill Police Department at (704) 545-1085.
