Windsor Police are investigating after an east side convenience store was robbed at gun point last night. Just before 9pm, polcie responded to a call at a convenience store in the 3600 block of Seminole Street for a report of a robbery.

When they arrived the 40 year old male clerk told police that minutes earlier, a lone male suspect had robbed him of a quantity of cash at gunpoint.

The clerk said that he had been seated behind the counter when he heard the “door chimes” activate signaling that the front door to the store had opened. He watched as a suspect wearing a blue scarf over the lower half of his face and carrying a black handgun walked up to the counter. The suspect pointed the handgun at the clerk and ordered him to open the cash register. The clerk complied by opening the till and was then ordered to sit down by the suspect. The suspect went behind the counter and began to empty the till of cash while continuing to point the gun at the clerk.

The suspect stuffed the cash into his pocket and then ran from behind the counter and out the front door. The clerk was unable to determine the suspect’s direction of travel. The clerk was not physically injured during the robbery.

The suspect is described as a white male, 20-25 years, blonde hair, blue eyes, 5’7″ tall and a skinny build. He was wearing a large blue and grey hooded sweat shirt with the hood up, a royal blue scarf over the lower half of his face and black gloves. He was carrying a black semi-automatic handgun.

Detectives are investigating the possibility of this suspect also being responsible for the trio of gunpoint robberies which took place April 13th and 15th on the city’s east side.

Anyone with any information regarding this robbery or the identity of the suspect is asked to call Windsor Police Investigations at 519-255-6700 ext 4830 or anonymously to Crime Stoppers at 519-258-TIPS (8477).
