Posted Updated

DURHAM, N.C. — A $1,000 reward is being offered for information that helps solve the robbery of a Family Fare BP store.

A man masking his face with a bandana entered the store on Chapel Hill Boulevard at Garret Road around 6:45 a.m. on April 6, police said. The man ordered an emloyee to get on the floor and pushed a second worker in the chest, knocking him into a chair.

The man grabbed cash from the register and ran out of the store, police said.

The suspect was described as a black male, 5 feet 9 inches tall and 165 pounds. He was wearing light blue jeans, white sneakers and a black hoodie with small dollar signs on it.

Investigators believe another man in the area might have been acting as a lookout.

He was described as a black male, 6 feet tall and 240 pounds. He wore a green shirt and a heavy black leather jacket with multi-colored designer writing on the back and sleeves. He may have been driving a white SUV.

Family Fare has offered a reward of $1,000 for information leading to an arrest and conviction in this case. That comes on top of a Crime Stoppers cash reward for information leading to an arrest.

Anyone with information about the robbery is asked to call Investigator F.L. Freeman at 919-560-4583, ext. 238 or Crime Stoppers at 919-683-1200. Callers to Crime Stoppers never have to identify themselves.
