FRASER — A man is currently on the run after an armed robbery in Fraser.

The incident occurred at approximately 3:56 a.m. Sept. 8 at Walgreen’s, 31100 Groesbeck Highway in Fraser. The store is open 24 hours.

At that time, a man walked into the Walgreen’s and allegedly grabbed a drink from a cooler prior to going to the register. Once he got to the register, he allegedly removed a black and silver handgun from his waist, put it in the clerk’s face and demanded all the money from the register.

“(The assailant) put (the gun) right in her face, he didn’t just point it at her,” Fraser Lt. Mike Pettyes said.

Pettyes said a few hundred dollars were stolen.

After the clerk placed the money in the bag, the suspect fled the scene.

“He went across Groesbeck,” Pettyes said. “We did a K-9 track westbound into Roseville near a gas station, where we lost (the suspect). There may have been a car there.”

The suspect is described as a black man, between 6 and 6 feet 2 inches tall, weighing 225-250 pounds, sporting a beard with a mustache, short black hair, and wearing a baseball cap with work-type glasses on the cap.

“He was wearing safety glasses,” he said. “We’re thinking he may work in the area and someone may recognize him.”

Anyone with information on the robbery can call the Fraser Police Department at (586) 293-1425, using the complaint number 16-12114.
