MANCHESTER, NH – Manchester Police Officer David Golia responded to TN Gas, 90 Bridge Street, at approximately 3:38 a.m. on Nov. 13 for an armed robbery. Upon arrival, Officer Golia spoke with the clerk who said an unknown male entered the store and demanded cash. The clerk also stated the unknown assailant was in possession of a black, semi-automatic handgun while committing the robbery. The store’s security system captured a picture of the suspect.
The clerk also provided a detailed description of the suspect. The suspect is described as a light-skinned African-American male, possibly 6-foot-2 inches tall with a thin to average build. He was wearing dark blue jeans with a grey hooded sweatshirt and black Nike sneakers with a white Nike swoosh on each side. His hood was covering his head and a black ski mask was covering his face, so an accurate facial description was not given.
The clerk also mentioned the assailant had silver ear piercings. The suspect fled the store with an undisclosed amount of cash and left on foot. A Manchester police dog attempted a track shortly after the incident, but was unable to locate the suspect.
A cash reward is available for tips leading to the identification and successful conviction of the suspect. Please contact Manchester Police Crimeline at (603) 624-4040 with your anonymous crime tip.
