Police seek suspect involved in attempted grocery store robbery

Posted: Updated:
THE BRONX -

Police are asking for the public’s help finding an attempted robbery suspect.

Authorities say last month, the suspect went into a grocery store at 305 East 181st Street and demanded money from the clerk.

The clerk refused, and the suspect went behind the counter trying to get the money on his own, but fled without taking any.

That suspect was last seen wearing glasses and a dark colored jacket.

Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS.
