Police are asking for the public’s assistance in identifying the suspect accused of an armed robbery of Sal’s Package Store on Saturday.

The clerk told Middletown Police that the black male seen in images from surveillance video entered the liquor store at about 9 p.m., said he had a gun in a bandana, and demanded money from the store clerks.  

The clerks described the suspect as “having a slender build, goatee, with dreadlocks. He was wearing a grey hooded sweatshirt, black and white sneakers, red gloves, and prescription glasses,” said police.

The man took off running toward the intersection of Saybrook Rd and East Main Street.
