— Police said Thursday they were searching for a man who held up a Fayetteville convenience store early Tuesday and sexually assaulted a woman.

A man brandishing a handgun went into the store, which is in vicinity of the 6000 block of Yadkin Road, at about 1 a.m. and stole merchandise and cash, police said. Before leaving the store, he pulled a woman into a back room and assaulted her.

The man fled down Fillyaw Road toward Reilly Road in a dark-colored Chevrolet Corsica or Pontiac Grand Am, police said.

He was described as black with medium to dark skin tone, 25 to 35 years old and 5 feet, 7 inches to 5 feet, 8 inches tall. He was wearing a black jacket with "Baller" written on the back, dark jeans and a dark cap.

    If I was gonna commit a crime, especially robbery or murder, I definitely would not want ANY contact with the victim due to DNA transfer. Not a smart move but I guess smart went out of the window with the thought of robbery.

    And they have no video cameras? Any store needs them. They are pretty cheap and well worth the price.

    DNA IF HE ASSAULTED IT COULD NOT HAVE BEEN SO SMART TO PROTECT HIMSELF. BECAUSE HE WASN'T SMART ENOUGH NOT TO ROB THE STORE.

    Isn't it bad enough that he robbed the store but felt the need to 'Sexually Assault' the store clerk that is trying to make an honest living @ minimum wage or just slightly above??

    When caught....This man deserves no mercy...Of any kind...
