Convenience Store Robbed in Broad Daylight
Police are investigating a convenience store robbery that happened during the afternoon on Memorial Day. Investigators are seeking the public’s help locating the suspect.
It was just after 4:00 when a black man with a raspy voice walked into the Gulf Convenience Store on North Main Street in Brewer and demanded money. The man then fled on foot, traveling toward State Street. In a press release today, Brewer police confirmed the man was spotted walking past the Irving and may have crossed the Penobscot bridge into Bangor.
He’s described as being a black male, 5’7″ to 5’10” tall, clean shaven with a thin build. He was wearing loose-fitting black pants with multiple pockets, a dark-grey zip-up hooded sweatshirt, and a brown winter stocking-type cap.
Anyone who thinks they may have seen something or may have information on this robbery is asked to call the Detective Division at 989–7001.
The Brewer Police Department was assisted by the Bangor Police Department, Holden Police Department, and the Penobscot County Sheriff’s Department who provided a K-9 unit to track the suspect.
