The man entered the liquor store shortly after 10:00 PM wearing a blue hoodie and a mask. Armed with a knife, he said “let’s go” to the clerk and demanded cash. He left the store with an undisclosed amount of money and drove away in a silver or light blue 10 year old Toyota Camry with no rear license plate. The man is described as a Caucasian, 6’2” tall, medium build with a deep voice. Police found the hoodie discarded on Cook Road a short time later.
