Armed Robbery at My College

I'm still reeling about this one! Yesterday at 1:45 I had just finished lunch and was talking with a friend as we walked through our Student Union Building. I glanced into our little "convenience store" as we passed, saw two people, thought nothing of it. Around 2:05 I walked back through, went to my dorm room. A few minutes later I got a campus alert about an armed robbery at the exact store I'd been outside of at the time it happened. I'm so MAD! If I'd paid ATTENTION I could have called 911 and we could have made sure this guy got caught! As it is he's just prancing about free right now, they haven't been able to find him. Apparently he robbed safeway last week, too. I can't believe someone really walked into the middle of our campus with a knife and robbed that store...with tons of people around... not only that it was DONE but that just like me no one NOTICED. Besides, he probably got what, fifty bucks? That store doesn't do much business. O.o
