Masked gunman robs 7-Eleven near Newark
State troopers are searching for a masked gunman who robbed a 7-Eleven in Augusta Square Shopping Center on East Chestnut Hill Road.
The robber entered the store just before 6:30 p.m. Sunday and confronted a sales clerk while armed with a handgun, Delaware State Police spokesman Sgt. Rich- ard Bratz said.
The clerk complied with the man’s demands for cash, and the robber ran out of the store. A customer heading into the 7-Eleven gave chase but stopped when the robber turned and pointed the gun at him.
The gunman was a white man, between 6 feet and 6 feet 2 inches tall and between 220 and 230 pounds. His face was covered during the robbery.
Police did not release any surveillance footage of the incident.
