On July 3, 2015, at approximately 5:24 P.M., Deputies responded to the 7-11 located at 5700 N. Wickham Road, Melbourne, in reference to a Robbery. The investigation determined that the victim, who had stopped at the gas pumps to fuel her vehicle, was approached by a black male who removed her purse from her vehicle.

The suspect, along with a second male identified as 19-year-old Corwyn Mitchell of Cocoa, then fled the area in a gold colored Toyota Four Runner.
