Snellville police search for armed robbery suspect

Posted: Updated:
SNELLVILLE, Ga. -

Police in Snellville are searching for a man accused of holding a knife to a gas station clerk's throat during a robbery on Saturday.  

Investigators say the suspect walked into the Citgo store on Scenic Highway in Snellville around 11 p.m., and jumped the counter.  They say he grabbed the store clerk and demanded cash.  The clerk fought back and pulled a bandanna off of the suspect's face.  

Police say the struggle continued, and the suspect forced the clerk into a back room.  He then pulled a knife and held it at the clerk's throat.  Investigators say the suspect forced the clerk to turn off the lights, and then go back to the cash register and open it.  The suspect got away on foot with an undisclosed amount of cash.  

Police released a surveillance photo from the incident on Monday, hoping someone will recognize the suspect.  He is described as a black male who was wearing jeans, a hoodie, and a light blue bandanna over his face at the time of the robbery.  Police say he had a glove on one hand, and possibly a sock on the other.

If you have information about this robbery, please call the Snellville Police Department.
