Natick Police Investigating Armed Robbery
NATICK — Police Chief James G. Hicks reports that the Natick Police Department is investigating a masked, armed robbery that occurred Tuesday afternoon.
Police responded to the Speedway Gas Station on Rt. 9 Eastbound near the Oak Street intersection at 3:55 p.m. Multiple Natick Police officers converged on the scene quickly. Upon arrival, officers learned that a masked suspect entered the gas station threatening to have a gun.
Officers set a perimeter and brought in a K-9 unit to attempt to track the suspect.
The suspect is described as 5’10” to 6′ tall with a stocky build. He was dressed in blue jeans with a black vest over a red hooded sweatshirt. He also wore a black knit watch cap and a gray ski mask.
The suspect was only in the building for about 30 seconds, and he appeared to have been scared off by a customer exiting the restroom. Nothing was stolen.
If anyone has any information on this incident or recognizes the suspect in the pictures, they are urged to contact Natick Police at 508-647-9500
