NEW LONDON, Conn. (WTNH) – New London police are asking for the public’s assistance in identifying a suspected robber who allegedly stole just over $400 from a CVS.
Around 8:30 p.m. Tuesday, police said that a man entered the CVS on Bank Street and approached the cashier demanding the employee open the register. He told the employee to give him all the money that was inside.
While the suspect didn’t display or threaten to use any weapons, police said it was insinuated through his actions that he had a weapon at the time of the robbery.
The suspect was able to steal $401 from the CVS register, then fled the scene on foot.
Police described the suspect as a “heavy set” Black man in his 30s to 40s. He was seen wearing a black hoodie (with an MMA logo on the front), long blue jeans, tan boots (which resemble color tan boot gaiters, or the removable legs of tan pants) and a black facemask.
Anyone with information regarding the robbery is asked to call the New London Police Department at (860) 447-1481.
