Newark Post - - Local News -

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.

Any­one with in­for­ma­tion about the rob­bery is asked to call Delaware State Po­lice at 302-365-8566. In­for­ma­tion may also be pro­vided by call­ing Delaware Crime Stop­pers at 1-800-TIP-3333, via the in­ter­net at www.delaware. crimestop­per­sweb.com, or by send­ing an anony­mous tip by text to 274637 (CRIMES) us­ing the key­word “DSP.”
