At about 11:30 p.m. Thursday night, officers of the Jefferson City Police Department responded to a panic alarm at the BreakTime Convenience Store located at 1940 West Main Street.
When officers arrived, they contacted the victim, a 35 year old Jefferson City resident, who stated a suspect emerged from the woods to the east of the business and approached him while he was outside cleaning the lot.
