Clerk Chases Montauk Ave. Robbery Suspect

New London Police look for suspect after holdup at Galaxy Convenience Store

A convenience store clerk gave chase Thursday after a man robbed the store.

Deputy Chief Peter Reichard said the New London Police Department is looking for the suspect in the case. He is described as a black male, about five feet nine or ten inches tall, with an estimated weight of 200 pounds.

Reichard said police received a call of a possible robbery in progress at the Galaxy Convenience Store on Thursday evening. Officers set up a perimeter and interviewed the clerk about the incident. A K-9 unit was also used to track the suspect.

The clerk said he chased the suspect down Moore Ave. and saw him take a hard fall before continuing. A woman on Shaw Street, which intersects with Moore Ave., called the police to say someone had been banging on her door that evening. Police collected evidence related to the robbery outside this residence.
