Armed Robbery At Colorado Springs Safeway


Police are seeking the public's help in finding a man wanted for holding up a local grocery store in the middle of the day.

The man reportedly pulled a gun on a clerk in the customer service area of the North Circle and Galley Safeway, threatening to shoot her if she didn't give him cash. The suspect was given an unknown amount of money, then he fled the store in a southbound direction. He was last seen running through the neighborhood just south of Galley Road.

The Safeway is located on 1121 N. Circle.

The suspect has been described as a muscular African American male, approximately 30 years of age, 6-foot-3 and weighing 210-220 pounds. He was wearing jeans, a black jacket and a gray hooded sweatshirt.

Anyone with information on this robbery is asked to contact the Colorado Springs Police Department, or call Crime Stoppers at 634-STOP to remain anonymous.

    I have shopped at carefree safeway and circle for 15 yrs. I have gotten friendly with many employees at these stores over the years and all they talk about is how much Safeway is cutting hours of employees to save money!! In the last few years, there have always been SECURITY GUARDS! until the last 6 mos.-yr. GEE I WONDER WHY THEY HAVE BEEN GETTING ROBBED? CUTTING BACK ON SECURITY CERTAINLY HASN'T SAVED MONEY HAS IT? NOT TO MENTION HOW MANY PEOPLE ARE AFRAID TO SHOP AT THESE STORES WITHOUT SECURITY!! WAKE UP SAFEWAY MGMT. !

    Supposedly this is might be the same man that robbed the Carefree store. Hope the clerk recovers from this event. Need to beef up store security in this store.
