The Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Office is searching for a robber armed with a knife who injured a Laurel Hill man Tuesday during a struggle over a wallet.
The 26-year old victim says he was at Gulf Coast Monument Company at 100 Martin Drive in Crestview around 9 a.m. when a man approached him, pulled out a knife, and demanded his wallet. The victim began to struggle with the robber and was cut in the leg when he tried to push the knife away from his stomach.
E-M-S personnel assessed the victim’s injuries at the scene and the man said he would drive himself to the hospital.
The suspect is described as a very dirty male, slim, and about 5’7” to 5’9” tall. He was wearing a dark-green sweatshirt with a hood, a dark blue hat, and very dirty jeans, along with black plastic sunglasses.
