Posted June 21, 2012

— Durham police are asking for the public's help in identifying a man who threatened to shoot employees during a robbery last week at a Papa John's.

Investigators say the man stopped by the store, at 5318 New Hope Common Drive, shortly before 9:30 p.m. Saturday, asking what time it closed.

He returned 5 minutes later and robbed the store. Although he did not show a weapon, police say he threatened to shoot workers if they did not comply

The man is described as black, in his mid-20s, 6 feet 5 inches tall and about 160 pounds. He was wearing a black do-rag, a dark shirt and black jogging pants.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Durham Police Department at 919-560-4583, extension 29356, or Crime Stoppers at 919-683-1200.

    "These People" jmf1073 4.0?

    By that you mean people who break the law or "black people"? Because if my memory serves me right, "those people" aren't the only one's making stupid decisions. I've seen plenty of lawyers, doctors, PhD's, and even presidents making stupid decisions and landing themselves in the news. Stupidity doesn't have a color. And another thing,President Johnson helped all people become equal amongst one another and supported people helping people and it's funny that so many posters are hiding behind computers telling people what they REALLY think of the people thats faces they smile in day in and day out.
