Robber Punches Pregnant Florida Boost Mobile Store Clerk in Face Before Escaping with Cash

Lee Moran, NY Daily News, June 20, 2014

A Florida robber has been caught on camera viciously punching a pregnant clerk before making off with bundles of cash.

Vincent Lavon Johnson is believed to be the man who unleashed the horrifying attack after walking into the Florida Boost Mobile Store in Pensacola on Wednesday.

Sickening surveillance footage purportedly shows the 41-year-old reaching over the counter and hitting 35-year-old Jessica Smith squarely in the face.

After she collapses on the floor, he then stands menacingly over her demanding access to the register.

Terrified, she gives in–and he quickly stuffs stacks of cash into his pants before fleeing the scene.


Smith was hospitalized with a broken nose but is expected to recover, according to WEAR.
