Boxcutter used in robbery of New Stanton market

| Tuesday, April 24, 2012, 1:59 p.m.

A man held up a Sunoco convenience store in New Stanton early Wednesday by threatening a clerk with a boxcutter knife.

State police in Greensburg said the man had a black hooded sweatshirt covering his face as he entered the store at 106 North Center Ave. about 2:18 a.m. and confronted the clerk, who was working at the self-serve coffee counter.

Police said the white male forced the clerk behind the counter and demanded money.

"I want everything ... get me everything," the robber told the clerk.

Police said the man forced the clerk to open one cash register and then made him open a second register. The man fled with an undetermined amount of cash in an unknown direction.

Anyone with information is asked to telephone police at 724-832-3288.

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.
