(New Haven, Conn./CBS Connecticut) – New Haven police looking for the suspect in a liquor store robbery in the city late Monday afternoon.
They say around 4:30, a man entered the Middletown Package Store on Middletown Avenue, rushing the clerk, who believed the suspect was armed with a handgun.
The suspect demanded cash, making off with $800 and several packs of cigarettes.
He is described as black, about five-foot-eight, 150 pounds with his hair in dreadlocks.
The crook was dressed in a white shirt with a “Rings End” logo, glasses or safety goggles, a red cap, dark pants and work boots.
Detectives think the object the clerk mistook for a gun may have been a cylindrical object like a flashlight.
