Police seek armed robbery suspect

Southington police are asking for the public’s help in an investigation into an armed robbery at Sam’s Quick Mart on Meriden-Waterbury Road.

On Thursday, August 22, at 9 p.m., a store clerk reported that a black male suspect entered the store and walked behind the counter. The suspect then pointed a handgun at the clerk and told him to give him all of the money.

The clerk handed the suspect money from the cash register. The suspect then ordered the clerk to lay on the ground and the suspect fled the scene.

An undetermined amount of money was taken during the robbery. There were no injuries reported during the robbery.

The suspect is described as a black male in his mid 20s to early 30s, approximately 5’9″ wearing a white button down long sleeve shirt, baggie blue jeans and a white baseball hat with a New York Yankee logo.

It appears that the suspect fled the scene in a red sedan with a Connecticut license plate on the rear of the vehicle.

Anyone with any information is asked to contact the Southington Police Department Detective Div. Detective Kyle Dobratz at 860-378-1654.
