Durham Police Trying to Identify Robbery Suspect

Durham police investigators are trying to identify a man who shot and wounded a store employee during an attempted robbery at Smoke 4 Less on Avondale Drive on September 28. The man is also suspected of robbing a fast food restaurant at gunpoint 30 minutes later.

 The attempted robbery happened when a man wearing a mask and armed with a gun entered Smoke 4 Less around 8 p.m. The man fired a shot at an employee who then returned fire. The employee suffered a gunshot wound to his arm and the suspect fled without taking anything. He was described as a black male with a skinny build. He was wearing a black mask, dark clothing and brown Timberland boots.

 Thirty minutes later, officers responded to an armed robbery at Hardees at 4607 South Alston Avenue. A man wearing a mask and armed with a gun entered the business and demanded money. He fled with an undisclosed amount of cash. The description of the suspect was the same as the description of the man who attempted to rob Smoke 4 Less.

 Anyone with information is asked to call Investigator Owens at (919) 560-4440, ext. 29365, Investigator Cramer at (919) 560-4440, ext. 29414 or CrimeStoppers at (919) 683-1200. CrimeStoppers pays cash rewards for information leading to arrests in felony cases and callers never have to identify themselves.
