The store employee told officers that shortly before closing time a well dressed black male entered the store and began to browse around. The male approached the clerk and stated “I hate to do this to you but I’m going to… this is a hold up.” The male then opened a brown leather bag and showed the clerk a black pistol and placed it back in the bag.
The clerk turned over a small amount of cash and his personal laptop. The suspect then left the store, fleeing in an unknown direction.
A K-9 track by officer Mike Kosh and Maximus led to the parking area behind the Sprint Store at 125 Boston Post Rd.
The suspect is described as a black male, 50 – 60 years old, 6 feet tall dark skinned and thin. He was wearing a black suit with a white shirt and black tie. The suspect was clean shaven.
Anyone with information is asked to call Detective Brian Petrucelli at 203-891-2138.
