Police seek ID of suspect in store robbery

The Newark Police Department hopes the public can identify a suspect accused of robbing a Metro PCS store earlier this month.



Police say a partially masked man who only spoke Spanish came into the store on the 300-block of Bloomfield Avenue on March 5 at around 4:30 p.m.



He started waving a gun in the faces of two female employees and demanded they fill a duffle bag with cash and phones.



Police say he was about 6 feet 4 inches tall and Hispanic.



It is believed he has robbed several other phone stores in Newark and the surrounding areas.



Anyone who may have any information about these crimes is urged to contact the Newark Police Department. A reward is being offered.
