ST ANN (KMOV.com) -

Surveillance video has been released of a suspect who took a clerk into a bathroom to mace her while robbing a payday loan store in St. Ann.

Authorities told News 4 the suspect walked into an Advance America store on St. Charles Rock Road, began to demand money and forced the clerk to open the register and safe.

“He has her open the cash drawer, he robbed her, she opens the drawer and then he takes her to a restroom,” said Elliott Miller with St. Ann Police.

After forcing the clerk to open the safe, police said the culprit took her to a bathroom and maced her. The bathroom was out of the view of the surveillance cameras.

“He has her go into the restroom where he actually maced her, shuts the door, and on his way out of the store, stops back at the safe,” Miller said.

The suspect left the store with a metal case full of cash, police said.
