Haddon Township Police are looking for a man who assaulted a cashier during a robbery at an adult bookstore.

Investigators say the suspect, driving a red Toyota Matrix or Prius, pulled up to the Edward’s News Agency on Route 130 and exited the passenger side. Police say the man entered the store and asked the cashier if he could have change for a $50 bill.

In surveillance video released by police, you can see the man pace back-and-forth in front of the store counter. After the cashier finishes counting the change, the suspect extends his hand and appears to offer the man a handshake. Instead the man jumps over the counter and starts punching the cashier in the head and biting him on the arm. The cashier fought back striking the suspect several times in the head.

The suspect then ran from the store to the awaiting car. Police say he stole about $48.

Investigators say the suspect is in his late 30’s or early 40’s and has several tattoos.

If you have any information in the case you are asked to contact Haddon Township Police at 856-854-1176.
