The Augusta Police Department is asking for the public's help identifying a suspect who robbed the Augusta Quik Mart Wednesday night.

It was around 5:33 Wednesday evening when the man walked into the store on Western Avenue in Augusta. An unidentified caller told police that the suspect threatened the use of a weapon and demanded an undisclosed amount of money. He then fled the scene before officers arrived. The suspect is described as a white male, approximately 5'8" to 6' tall, wearing a dark hoodie sweatshirt, jeans, and dark shoes, with a white facial covering.

Police continue to investigate the crime. Anyone who thinks they may have information pertinent to the investigation is asked to contact the Augusta Police Department's Criminal Investigations Bureau at (207) 626-2370, ext. 3418.
