Bristol police are asking for the public’s help in identifying the suspect who was involved with a robbery at Marty’s Package Store on Sunday.

According to a press release from the Bristol Police Department, the suspect, who was caught on the store’s video surveillance system, threatened the clerk with a knife and demanded money.
