Store Clerk’s Daughter, 6, Threatened During Holdup

ARLINGTON, Va. – Arlington County police believe the robber who held a gun to a six-year-old while robbing an Asian grocery store is linked to a string of other crimes.

Surveillance video captured images of the gunman inside the Bangkok 54 grocery store in the 2900 block of Columbia Pike around 7:50 p.m. on Dec. 31.

The suspect pointed a handgun at the clerk’s six-year-old daughter while demanding money from the clerk. After getting an undisclosed amount of cash, the man fled the area on foot. The child was not hurt.

“He put a gun to her her neck,” said the child’s grandmother.

With a gun pointed at his daughter, the child’s father frantically threw all the money he had at the robber. The robber then left and the father raced to the child to comfort her.

I go to Dong Nam regularly and my parents used to own Bangkok 54 (gah).
