Suspect sought in robbery at Detroit CVS

The Detroit News

Detroit police are seeking tips from the public to find a man who robbed a CVS on the east side last month.

A man entered the store in the 10600 block of Gratiot at about 7 p.m. May 30, approached the counter, asked an employee which cash register she was tending then demanded money from it, investigators said in a statement.

The man was not armed, according to the release.

Another worker gave him an undisclosed amount of money, authorities said.

Video footage officials released Tuesday shows a man taking the bills and heading to the door.

After that, he fled south on foot, police said.

The man is described as white, about 30 years old, 5-foot-9, between 130 and 140 pounds, with dark brown or black hair cut short. He was last seen with an unshaven face and wearing a dark colored undershirt, dark long-sleeved plaid shirt, blue jeans and black boots.

Anyone who has information about the crime is asked to call the 5th Precinct Detective Unit at (313) 596-5549. Anonymous tips can also be left through Crime Stoppers of Michigan at (800) SPEAK-UP.
