According to information released by Chief Anthony Everage, the incident occurred at approximately 10:30 p.m. when a lone suspect entered the business and demanded money from the clerk. The suspect was armed with a small handgun during the crime.

In addition to the clerk, a customer was also inside the store during the robbery. No one was injured during the commission of the incident.

The clerk reported the suspect, who was described as being five-feet-one in height and weighing approximately 150 pounds, took an undetermined amount of money and fled the scene on foot. Dressed in all-black clothing, the suspect was last seen running north on South Brundidge Street.

Detectives are following up on all leads in connection with the reported robbery, which remains under investigation by the TPD.

While still investigating the Wednesday night incident, police are also looking into several incidents where vehicles and residences have been burglarized recently.

Everage urges citizens to make sure car doors and residence doors are locked at all times and report any suspicious individuals or circumstances in their neighborhoods.

Anyone with information on the robbery or other crimes is asked to call the police department at 566-0500 or the Secret Witness Line at 566-5555.
