Crime Stoppers needs the public’s help to identify the man who attempted to rob the 7-Eleven store located at 221 W. Main St.

On Saturday, January 30 at approximately 7:50 p.m. an employee was outside of the store when the man approached her, grabbed her arm and told her to give him the money from the register. The suspect partially displayed a handgun from his waistband.

The victim hesitated going into the store and the suspect fled the area. Detectives believe the suspect may have gotten into a dark colored vehicle.

He is described as a light skinned black male wearing a dark grey hoodie, dark colored pants, and he had the hoodie covering his head. He was approximately 6`0, and weighed approximately 200 lbs.
