Newark Post - - POLICE BLOTTER -

A knife-wield­ing man robbed a con­ve­nience store in Au­gusta Square Shop­ping Cen­ter late Sun­day, po­lice said.

The man walked into the 7-Eleven at 699 E. Ch­est­nut Hill Road just be­fore 9 p.m., said Sgt. Richard Bratz, a spokesman for Delaware State Po­lice.

The man con­fronted a clerk and de­manded money, Bratz said. The clerk gave the rob­ber an undis­closed amount of cash, and the rob­ber left. No one was in­jured.

The rob­ber was a white man, be­tween 5 feet 10 inches and 6 feet tall, weigh­ing be­tween 150 to 170 pounds and wear­ing dark cloth­ing. No sur­veil­lance footage was re­leased.

Ac­cord­ing to Newark Post records, this marks at least the ninth time the store has been robbed in the past three years.

Any­one with in­for­ma­tion about the rob­bery should con­tact DSP at 302-365-8566. In­for­ma­tion may also be pro­vided by call­ing Delaware Crime Stop­pers at 1-800TIP-3333, via the in­ter­net at www. delaware.crimestop­per­sweb.com.
