A thirteen-time convicted felon brandished a knife to rob an Andersonville Walgreens on Tuesday afternoon, prosecutors said.
Shortly after 2 p.m., 44-year-old Timothy Marion entered the store at 5440 North Clark and began loading merchandise into his backpack. When the store manager approached him, Marion pulled out a knife and allegedly told the employee “walk away… I’ll stab you,” according to police records.
Cops said they recovered a knife from Marion’s pants pocket when they took him into custody about a block from the store. He is a documented member of the Black P-Stones street gang, according to police.
Marion, of the 2700 block of North Hoyne, has been charged with Class X felony armed robbery. Judge Michael Clancy ordered him held without bail.
