Gwinnett PD seek help in identifying suspect in armed robbery

The Gwinnett County Police Department is looking for the public’s help in identifying a man accused of robbing the BP gas station at the corner of Rosebud Road and Highway 78 in Loganville late  Monday afternoon.

According to a story on Grayson Local News, the suspect entered the BP at about 5 p.m., produced a handgun, confronted the clerk and demanded cash. After obtaining cash from the registers, he reportedly forced the clerk into a walk-in freezer and fled the store on foot. The scene was locked down for while as the clerk wasn’t sure whether the suspect was still inside or not. Officers were eventually able to confirm that the suspect had exited through the rear emergency exit door.

The suspect is described as black male, 55 to 65 years old, average height (approx. 5’09” tall) with a thin build (approx. 160 lbs.). He also has a black and grey beard and wears glasses.
