STONEHAM — Chief James McIntyre and the Stoneham Police Department are seeking the public’s assistance with identifying the suspect in an armed robbery that occurred earlier this week in town in which the suspect brandished a syringe at a gas station clerk.
On Sunday, Aug. 25 at 11:12 p.m., Stoneham Police responded to the Mobil station on Montvale Avenue for a report of a robbery at the convenience store inside the gas station. Upon arrival, officers were met by a clerk who stated that a man came in the store and asked to use the phone and then pulled out a needle and demanded money. The suspect fled with an undetermined quantity of cash.
The suspect is described as a white male in his 20s or 30s. He was wearing a green or gray baseball cap with an orange symbol on the front and a black t-shirt with a diamond design on the front made up of dollar bills.
The surveillance footage also showed that the suspect has a unique tattoo on his left forearm just below the elbow.
If anyone has any information that could lead to the arrest of this suspect, they are urged to contact the Stoneham Police Department at 781-438-1215.
