Newark Post - - LOCAL NEWS -

A cashier at a Glas­gow phar­macy suf­fered mi­nor in­juries while try­ing to fend off a rob­ber Mon­day af­ter­noon.

The rob­ber en­tered the Rite Aid in Peo­ples Plaza and ap­proached the cashier to make a pur­chase, said Sgt. Richard Bratz, a spokesman for Delaware State Po­lice. When the cashier opened the cash reg­is­ter drawer, the rob­ber reached over the counter and grabbed an undis­closed amount of money.

The clerk suf­fered a mi­nor in­jury while at­tempt­ing to pull the rob­ber away from the reg­is­ter, Bratz said.

The rob­ber — a thin black man, 5 feet 6 inches tall and be­tween 40 and 50 years old — ran out of the store and into the park­ing lot of the shop­ping cen­ter.

Any­one with in­for­ma­tion about the rob­bery should call DSP at 302-365-8566. In­for­ma­tion may also be pro­vided by call­ing Delaware Crime Stop­pers at 1-800-TIP3333 or via the in­ter­net at www.delaware.crimestop­per­sweb.com.
