Robbery suspect sought

Suffolk police are seeking the public’s assistance identifying an armed robbery suspect.

The man entered the Walmart on College Drive around 3:31 a.m. Sunday and asked a clerk to look at a camera in a display case, according to a release from city spokeswoman Diana Klink.

The suspect, a black male, chose a camera, and the clerk started the transaction. But instead of paying, the man said he had a firearm and wasn’t going to pay for the camera, Klink said.

He then ran out of the store and left in a gold Pontiac Grand Am with two other black males, according to the press release.

The man is described as having a thin build, about 5 feet 10 inches to 6 feet 1 inch tall, 150 to 170 pounds, with shoulder-length dreadlocks and a beard and mustache. He was wearing blue jeans and a T-shirt with a logo that mimics the American flag and appears to say “The Cool Kids.”

Anyone who has information is asked to call Crime Line at 1-888-LOCK-U-UP. Callers to Crime Line never have to give their names or appear in court, and may be eligible for a reward of up to $1,000.

Detective R. Cain is the lead investigator and can be reached at 514-7935.
