APD Seeks Assistance in Identifying Robbery Suspect

ASHEVILLE NC – On Thursday, 05-31-12 at approx. 9:26 p.m., Officers with the Asheville Police Department responded to the Little Caesars Restaurant, located at 801 Fairview Rd. in East Asheville, in reference to an Armed Robbery that had just occurred.

Video surveillance clearly shows the suspect entering the store and ordering all of the employees onto the floor at gunpoint while demanding money from the night manager.  Shortly thereafter, the suspect is seen leaving in an unknown direction of travel.

Suspect is described as a light skinned black male or possibly bi-racial male. He was wearing a grey hoodie, grey gloves with black palms, light colored high-top shoes or boots with black soles (possibly Jordan’s), black ball cap, light blue jeans and held a semi-automatic handgun with a silver slide and black frame.  The male also walked and ran with a “pigeon toed” gate.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Asheville Police Department at 828-252-1110 or Asheville Buncombe crimestoppers at 828-255-5050.  Individuals can also text an anonymous tip to APD TIP at 274637 (CRIMES).
