Denver police are searching for a man they say robbed a cupcake store armed with a syringe.
The robbery happened at Gigi’s Cupcakes at 550 Grant Street. The thief got away with a small amount of cash.
According to clerk Kendra Jackson, the suspect pulled out the syringe and threatened to stick a patron if another clerk didn’t comply with his demands.
“He had a syringe that he said was filled with blood that had been infected with AIDS and he said he was going to stick her if he didn’t open up the cash registers,” Jackson said.
