Police are searching for a suspect wanted for an armed robbery on Tremont Street on Sunday, according to the Boston Police Department.
Boston Police officers responded to a distress alarm at 9:35 a.m. on Sunday at a convenience store located at 973 Tremont St, police said. On their way to the scene, officers were informed that a male suspect with a firearm had robbed the store.
The victim was behind the counter when the suspect walked into the store with a large silver firearm. The suspect then pointed the gun at the victim and demanded that the victim empty the cash register. The victim handed the suspect $150 in cash, to which the suspect reportedly asked, “where is the rest of the money?” The victim pointed to a cashbox underneath the counter where additional money was kept. The suspect took the cashbox and the money from the drawer and fled out towards police headquarters on Tremont Street, according to police.
The suspect got away with a total of $500. The victim described the suspect as a Hispanic man standing 5-feet-5-inches, medium build, wearing a black baseball hat, a black sweatshirt, jeans and a black facemask.
This investigation is ongoing. Boston Police are asking anyone with information to contact the District 4 detectives at 617-343-5619.
