On Monday Oct. 28, at about 6:55 pm police received a 911 call from the clerk at Cold Stone Creamery, 297 Boston Post Rd, Orange, stating she had just been robbed. Officers arrived within moments and a K-9 track was initiated. The track led to the rear of a closed business at 285 Boston Post Rd. where it ended.
The clerk described the suspect as a white male wearing a dark blue hooded sweatshirt with white stripes down each sleeve. The male wore a dark colored baseball cap beneath the hood and a dark colored bandanna over the lower half of his face. He was wearing green camouflage pants and dark gloves. He was described at between 5-5 and 5-7 and about 150 – 170 lbs. He brandished a knife and demanded the clerk to open the register. When she did, he grabbed an undetermined amount of cash and fled the store. No one was injured during the event.
The suspect has a similar description as a suspect who robbed the Subway at 116 Boston Post Rd on Oct. 6. Orange Police Detectives processed the scene and are working on securing video surveillance from the Cold Stone location. We are also working with area departments which have had similar robberies.
Anyone with any information is asked to call Detective Mary Bernegger at 203-891-2138
