MONTVILLE TWP. — Police have released photos and a video of a suspect in an armed robbery Saturday afternoon at Buehler’s market.
The video shows surveillance footage of a young black man wearing black shorts and a black hoodie walking around the store, 3626 Medina Road (state Route 18).
Police say the man in the video is suspected as being the robber who approached a woman as she was leaving the store at about 3:45 p.m. Saturday, pointed a black semiautomatic pistol at her and demanded her purse.
Montville Police Sgt. Matthew Neil said police are pursuing all leads.
“This is our strongest lead so far,” said. “Hopefully the public will be able to assist.”
Witnesses said the robber drove away in a dark green, older-model Toyota toward Medina Road and a second black man was in the car.
“The accomplice stayed in the car as far as we know,” Neil said. “We don’t think he entered the store.”
The woman was unharmed, but police Chief Terry Grice said she was “definitely shaken up.”
Police are asking for the public’s help in identifying the man. Anyone who recognizes the man is asked to call the Police Department at (330) 661-0120.
