By Staff | Feb 3, 2016

Cape Coral Police Department detectives are asking the public to help identify a man officials say held up a store clerk at gunpoint Wednesday morning.

The gunman entered the 7-eleven at 3206 Santa Barbara Blvd S, at around 2 a.m.

“He obtained an undisclosed amount of money and fled northeast on foot,” a release from the CCPD issued today states. “Officers responded to the store and set up a perimeter, but were unable to locate the suspect.

“The suspect was wearing a black hooded sweatshirt and light blue ripped jeans. He is described as being approximately 40-50 years old, with a thin build, short gray hair and blue eyes.”

The CCPD asks anyone who was in the area during this time frame and saw anything, or has any information on the identity of the suspect, to contact the Cape Coral Police Department at 239-574-3223.
