Man who tried to rob store with syringe sentenced

FALL RIVER, Mass. (WPRI) — A man who tried to rob a convenience store with a dirty syringe pleaded guilty Tuesday to armed assault.

Jeffrey Munroe, 28, will serve five to seven years in prison, according to the Bristol Count District Attorney’s Office.

Prosecutors said Munroe walked into Sunny’s Convenience Store last November, armed with a syringe and wearing a clown mask. He demanded money, but the clerk chased the suspect out of the store with a baseball bat.

Police said they found Munroe in a nearby alley, along with the clown mask and syringe.
