Pittsburgh police are seeking the public’s help to track down a woman suspected of robbing a Mt. Washington convenience store last week.

The robbery occurred around 11 p.m. Oct. 14 at the CoGo’s store at 20 Bailey Ave., according to police.

The suspect told the cashier turn over all the money from the register and threatened to harm her, police said.

Police described the suspect as a thin woman standing about 5 feet, 3 inches tall. She appeared to be about 30 years old and was wearing black coveralls with reflective stripes at the time of the robbery, according to police.

Surveillance photos were posted on the public safety section of the city’s website, pittsburghpa.gov./publicsafety.

Anyone with information about the incident or the suspect’s whereabouts is asked to call Pittsburgh police at 412-323-7161.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
