NORWALK, Conn. – A man who claimed to have a gun held up a Norwalk store early Monday, Norwalk Police reported. Police have obtained photos of the suspect from video surveillance footage and are asking for help identifying him.
The robbery of the 7-Eleven at 247 Main Ave. was reported at 4:16 a.m. The 66-year-old clerk, who had been robbed before, said he was alone at the time, Sgt. James Boff said. He had gone to the restroom and when he returned a man who said he had a gun told him to hurry up and turn over the money in the register.
The man did not show a gun, Boff said. He fled on foot, and a police dog, Kimbo, followed a trail that ended on Jefferson Street.
Police are seeking a clean shaven black man in his mid-30s, about 5-foot 7-inches tall with a medium build. The man was dressed in black and police think he has dreadlocks, based on a witness description.
Anyone with information should call Det. David Hudyma at 203-854-3189.
