    Authorities are asking the public to help identify the suspect, who was caught on surveillance video during the Sept. 20 robbery in West Park.

    According to the sheriff’s office, the suspect, who was armed, approached the man and said, “Gimme the gold.” Then he snatched the man’s gold chain and took his wallet and cellphone, deputies said.
