It appears to be robbery story day around here.
that lesson is simple. Speak up, lest your attempt fail as did that ofCarlie McDuffie.
The incident happened at approximately 10:38 a.m. at the Family Dollar, 2120 Saxon Blvd. The clerk told deputies that McDuffie had walked up to her and whispered, “Give me the money from the register.” The 34-year-old clerk asked him what he needed and he repeated his whispered demand. She again asked him what he needed and he said “forget it” and then walked quickly out the front door and fled around a corner. The clerk then called 911.
Less than 30 minutes later deputies found McDuffie trying to elude capture in the 500 block of South Floyd Circle. The Deltona man was charged with attempted robbery and resisting arrest without violence. He was transported to the Volusia County Branch Jail in Daytona Beach.
