Customer Threatens Employees with Butcher Knife at Miramar Publix

Surveillance video released Wednesday show a customer who is accused of pulling a knife on employees at a Publix in Miramar.

Security cameras captured a man accused of threatening employees with a knife as he walked out of the store. The incident happened July 27 at the Publix located on 9951 Miramar Parkway.

Footage showed the suspect in the store's express lane paying for that 8-10 inch long butcher knife, a beer can and soda. But, police said the man had other items hidden in his pants. 

After the suspect checked out, the store manager and an employee followed him as he walked out of the store. The workers tried to talk to the man but he turned around, pulled out the knife and threatened them, police said. 

According to detectives, the suspect yelled at the employees, "You want some of this, mother f**ker?!" That's when the employees backed off. 

Police don't know what items the suspect had hidden in his pants. Anyone with information on this case is urged to call Broward Crime Stoppers at 954-493-TIPS.
