Magazine Salesman Robs Woman

Authorities say a door-to-door magazine salesman forced his way into a central Florida woman's home and robbed her after she refused to buy any subscriptions.

The Clay County Sheriff's Office reports that 21-year-old Brandon C. Sheriff approached the 18-year-old woman Thursday afternoon and asked if he could use her phone to call his boss.

When she declined to buy any subscriptions, authorities say Sheriff
shoved her to the ground and took her purse. When she tried to pull
the purse back, he punched her in the face and ran off.

Sheriff was arrested and charged with home-invasion robbery.
His bail has not been set.

Deputies couldn't say what magazine subscriptions Sheriff was selling and believed it could have been part of a scam.
