A robber who last night held up an Ohio grocery store pointed a gun at a clerk and repeatedly demanded to know whom the man voted for in the presidential election. When the worker said that he could not vote, the gunman announced, “Vote Obama. This is Obama, bitches.”
The swing state stickup occurred at the Convenient Food Mart in Warren, a city 15 miles north of Youngstown. The suspect–described as a black male wearing a bandana covering his face–fled the business with $800 from the cash register.
Before departing, the armed robber quizzed clerk Surendra Patel about his electoral preference, according to a Warren Police Department report. “The suspect asked Patel several times who he voted for while pointing the gun at him.”
