  • Florida's St. Augustine Police Department said they are searching for the suspect who robbed a group of children at gunpoint at a popular park. The robbery happened at Project Swing park on Saturday around 9:30 p.m. Several signs at the park read, “For your safety, park is closed from dusk to dawn.” According to the report, the victims, whose ages are redacted, were sitting at the tables in the middle of the park when a man approached them and demanded money. In the report, one of the victims said the suspect pointed the gun into his chest when he told him he didn’t have any money. Police said the man took $16 from one of the victims before he tried to grab a backpack from the other.

Detectives said the suspect took off running in the opposite direction toward Ketterlinus gym. By the time police responded, the suspect was gone. Investigators said they found a bag believed to belong to the suspect near the tennis courts next to the park. It was sent to the lab for DNA testing. Anyone with information on the suspect is encouraged to call the police department.
  • There’s a new push to help veterans get STEM jobs after they finish their service. John Harris III spent eight years in the Army as a diesel mechanic.  “We work on the military equipment that is assigned to the unit ... we make sure the vehicles are ready for deployment,” Harris said.  He’s been living and working in Jacksonville for the past five years.  On Tuesday, Action News Jax told him about a new bill called the Supporting Veterans in STEM Careers Act.  It would help veterans reenter the work force and pursue careers in science, technology, engineering and math.  It would also update scholarship programs to include veterans.  The bipartisan bill was introduced by Senators Marco Rubio and Amy Klobuchar and passed in the Senate last December.  On Monday, it unanimously passed in the House of Representatives.  Senator Rubio sent out a statement Monday night saying: “This important bipartisan bill to ensure our nation’s veterans have the skills and opportunities to succeed in STEM careers is now on its way to the president’s desk.”  Harris has been a client with the 5 Star Veterans for the past year, and he says that the new bill can help his brothers and sisters that have served in the military find better-paying jobs.  “Many veterans come out, they have their 9/11 education benefits, their GI Bill benefits and this is just going to be another addition to help veterans find jobs in the technological, engineering, and science field,” he said.  The STEM Careers Act would work with the National Science Foundation and Office of Science and Technology Policy to help coordinate programs for veterans transitioning into STEM careers, as well as look at what barriers prevent veterans from entering these fields.
