Miami-Dade Police are asking for the public's help identifying a suspect who assaulted and robbed a man outside a convenience store.
It happened on April 21 around noon at 1735 Northwest 69th Terrace in northwest Miami-Dade.
MDPD said the 54-year-old victim entered the store and shortly after, the suspect was observed entering the store and walking around aimlessly.

The victim was able to free himself and run into the store, where he was assisted by store clerks. Miami-Dade Fire Rescue treated the victim for a contusion to his head and lacerations to his face.
