Crime Stoppers and the Chattanooga Police Department are seeking information on the identification of a suspect in a robbery that occurred on Feb. 19.
The Tobacco Mart on Hixson Pike was robbed by a gunman, around 2:15 p.m. The suspect, who had his face partially covered and was armed with a black handgun, entered the store. He forced the clerk to the register where he took cash contained therein. He then demanded that the clerk empty his pockets at which time the robber took cash, credit cards, and the clerk’s identification. The suspect was last seen leaving toward the Krystal.
The suspect was reported as a black male. The suspect appeared to have been dressed in all blue with a blue hat and dark shoes. He is approximately 6’ to 6’02 tall and was armed with a black pistol.
During this incident the suspect was forceful with the clerk, physically pushing him around, and at times held the gun to the clerk’s head. This dangerous suspect needs to be identified before he can commit further crimes in the community.
Anyone with information on the identity of this male subject or the robbery should call Crime Stoppers. A confidential call could result in a cash reward.
