Man who robbed local 7-Eleven on Labor Day at large
Posted September 16, 2013
CLINTON TOWNSHIP — At press time, the Clinton Township Police Department was still looking for information pertaining to a suspect who robbed a 7-Eleven on Labor Day.
The man walked into the 7-Eleven located at 37335 Harper, near Metropolitan Parkway, just before 8 p.m. Sept. 2. He left the store because there was a flurry of customers inside.
He returned at 8:23 p.m. and went straight toward the register. He pulled out a knife from his rear left pocket and demanded money from the clerk. The clerk, a female, handed the suspect an undetermined amount of currency, and he then fled northbound once he exited the store.
The robber is a white male estimated to be between the ages of 25 and 30 years old, and his height is in a range between 5-foot-10-inches and 6 feet. He has a medium physical build and a thin beard. He was wearing a green polo shirt, a blue baseball cap, red gym shoes and blue jeans.
St. Clair Shores police believe the same man may have been responsible for an armed robbery, again using a knife, on Sept. 7 at a Shell gas station in St. Clair Shores.
If anyone has any information about the suspect, they can call Detective Bryan Gilbert at the Clinton Township Police Department at (586) 493-7845. Citizens can remain anonymous in the identification of the suspect.
