Armed Robbery With A
Knife – Stop Quick Convenience Store (12 Haverhill St.)
This afternoon around
4:12 pm, an unidentified male suspect attempted to rob the Stop Quick
convenience store. The suspect brandished a knife and demanded
money from the clerk. The clerk immediately fought back and drove the
suspect away from the counter. The suspect grabbed the cash register and
attempted to exit the store. The clerk had locked the door so the suspect
could not leave the store. He began to smash the door with the register
until he was able to break the glass flee on foot out of the store.
Before fleeing the store, the male dropped the knife. The suspect entered
the passenger’s front door of a blue SUV (possibly a Jeep) and was last seen
heading down Cypress Ave. towards Lawrence.
The suspect is
described as a white male, 6’4”, 250 lbs, approx. 35 years old, wearing a grey
sweatshirt and grey sweatpants. The suspect may have injuries from
exiting the front glass door.
If you recognize this male subject, please contact the
