Incident of the day

On Jan. 27, officers responded to 2209 Main St., Beyond 02 Water, for a strong-arm robbery call.

They met with a store employee who told them a man came into the store, selected three protein bars from the display and put them into his jacket pocket.

The man began to walk towards the door without paying for the items and the employee stepped in front of him to stop him from leaving. She told the man to put the bars back or pay for them. The man then pushed her out of the way and exited the store.

A radio broadcast was made of the man’s description and officers located someone who matched walking along the beach bike path. The store employee was brought down to the beach and she positively identified the man as the person who pushed her away from the door and stole three protein bars.

Officers placed him under arrest for the assault and theft. Fawzi Babeeker, homeless, had bail set at $50,000.
