Cops searching for suspect in attempted armed robbery

Police are searching for a man who tried robbing a store in Logan at gunpoint, but ran off without any money on Monday.

The man walked into the Loudon Food Market on Loudon Street near 15th around 8 p.m. and pointed a handgun at one of the employees, police said.

He threatened a second employee with the gun and ran off when the second employee started screaming.

Surveillance footage recorded the man inside the store before he left, and police are hoping help from the public leads to the man’s arrest.

Police describe the suspect as a black man, between 25 and 30 years old, between 5-feet-7 and 5-feet-8 inches tall. He has a light complexion and was wearing a black hooded jacket, brown polo shirt and blue jeans at the time.

Tipsters are asked to call 215-686-TIPS.
