The suspect is described as a black male, wearing a black hat, a handkerchief over his face, blue shirt and dark pants. 

Police said the suspect used a black handgun during the robbery and made off with an estimated $300 in cash. The suspect is believed to have gotten into a four-door white car following the alleged robbery. 

Victims told police a white male could have possibly been an acting as a ‘look out' during the crime. According to the report, “[the white male] driving that [white] vehicle who was in and out of the store getting $5 in gas but kept going in to possibly check to see if the store was clear.” 

The victim told police, “the unknown black male came in shortly after the vehicle left from the wood line behind the store, as he was seen on camera and came in pointing a black handgun at victim 1 and 2 demanding money.”

After grabbing the register and demanding money, the suspect ran “towards the highway possibly running to Highway 134.”
