West Hartford Police are hoping that the public will be able to provide information to assist in the identification of a man who robbed a gas station convenience store on Wednesday, June 28.
According to police, the male suspect, seen in the video above wearing a white or light-yellow colored baseball cap with sunglasses on top, entered the Sunoco Gas Station convenience store at 669 Farmington Ave. at 2:22 p.m.
The man can be seen standing in the convenience store for several seconds before covering up the lower portion of his face with a yellow bandana and moving toward the clerk. He placed his gloved right hand into a plastic bag, which simulated the appearance of a firearm, police said.
The man passed a note to the clerk, “politely requesting money,” police said. He left with the note and an unspecified amount of cash, and fled on foot toward the intersection of Farmington Avenue and Prospect Avenue, police said.
The man is described as a Hispanic or light-skinned black male wearing a burgundy t-shirt, tan cargo shorts, and dark-colored low-top sneakers, as well as the hat with the sunglasses on top and a yellow bandana around his neck. He had a light-colored latex-type glove on his right had.
Police also said the man had a tattoo on his left forearm.
Anyone with information is asked to contact the West Hartford Police Department at 860-523-5203.
