Suspect Identified in Foot Locker Armed Robbery

by MCS Staff

Per MCPD: On Friday, September 9, 2022, Kenneth Shawn Purvis entered a Foot Locker store in the 8600 block of Colesville Rd. asked to try on a pair of shoes and stated he wanted to purchase them. When Purvis approached the counter, he appeared to attempt to use his phone to pay with a mobile app and then took cash out of his pocket. He then grabbed a pair of scissors that were on the counter, walked behind the counter and demanded that the employee get out of his way.

The employee complied with his demands. Purvis then took the sneakers from the clerk, removed his shoes and put on the new sneakers. Upon attempting to exit the store, the store manager confronted him. Purvis then brandished the scissors and threatened her before leaving the store.
