Po­lice: Man tried to rob Black­stone Sub­way

Woonsocket Call - - FRONT PAGE -

BLACK­STONE – Po­lice are ask­ing the pub­lic for help in iden­ti­fy­ing a man who at­tempted to rob a clerk at the Sub­way in the Park ‘n’ Shop plaza Wed­nes­day.

At about 5:30 p.m., a white male wear­ing a dark sweat­shirt, a dust mask and safety gog­gles walked into the sand­wich shop and passed a note to the clerk de­mand­ing money.

Po­lice de­scribed the de­vice cov­er­ing the sus­pect’s face as a “dual fil­ter dust/ res­pi­ra­tor mask.” The safety gog­gles were “Oak­ley style” clear plas­tic safety gog­gles, the Black­stone Po­lice Depart­ment said in a state­ment. The sus­pect was also wear­ing a dark blue jacket with the Carhartt logo.

Upon see­ing the sus­pect and re­ceiv­ing the note, the clerk be­came fright­ened and ran off. At that point, the sus­pect also fled.

The sus­pect is be­lieved to

have driven away in an early 2000s-model Volvo, pos­si­bly white or sil­ver.

Any­one who has in­for­ma­tion that might help po­lice iden­tify the sus­pect in the at­tempted rob­bery is urged to con­tact De­tec­tive Travis Loether.

He can be reached by email at loether@black­stonepo­lice.org. In­for­ma­tion can also be supplied via https://black­stonepo­lice.org/sub­mit-a-tip/, or by phone us­ing the tipline, 508-876-5847.

Po­lice say the driver of this car is a sus­pect in an at­tempted rob­bery in Black­stone.
