The Troy Police Department is requesting the public’s help identifying a black male that they say committed an armed robbery at a gas station on Christmas Eve.

“Within minutes of the store opening for business at 8 a.m. on December 24, a black male approximately 5’7” tall wearing light-colored blue jeans and a dark-colored long sleeve shirt entered the store armed with a handgun and demanded money from the clerk,” said Troy Police Chief Randall Barr. “The subject’s face was covered with a black bandana. The subject took an undisclosed amount of cash from the drawer and fled from the store on foot.”

Barr said the subject was last seen running toward Center Street.
