Troopers seek identity of man who they say threatened clerk with knife during robbery
State police are asking the public’s help identifying a suspect in a daylight robbery Saturday at a Dollar Tree store in Somerset Township.
Troopers said a white man between 30- and 40-years-old and about 6 feet tall entered the Somerset Township store on North Center Avenue at 2:10 p.m. and threatened a clerk with a knife.
Police said the man demanded all the money in the store’s safe and cash register. The amount stolen was not disclosed.
Trooper Joseph Kozuch said the suspect had dirty blond hair, weighed about 170 pounds, and was wearing a dark-colored baseball hat, medium blue T-shirt, black shorts and black flip-flops.
After the robbery, the suspect ran toward a nearby Walmart parking lot.
Police released a photograph of the suspect taken from a store surveillance camera.
Anyone with information is asked to call Kozuch at 814-445-4104
