Salem police search for man who robbed 7-Eleven at gunpoint

SALEM — Police are seeking the man who robbed the 7-Eleven on Norman Street late Friday night, menacing the clerk with a gun.

The robber escaped with cash. The amount is not being released. He is described as a white male, about 6-foot-1 with a thin build and wearing a gray sweatshirt, plaid coat and black stocking cap.

The store was deserted except for the night clerk when the robber struck a few minutes after 11 p.m., demanding cash and showing what is believed to be an actual gun. In response, the clerk opened the register. The clerk was not physically injured.

Police searched the area after the crime but were unable to locate a suspect.

Information obtained at the crime scene is now being studied in order to identify the criminal. The investigation is being conducted by Detectives J. Dennis Gaudet and Brian St. Pierre.
