Orange Police are looking for a well-dressed man who robbed the Bedding Barn store at gunpoint last night.
According to a police report released Wednesday afternoon, an employee of the Boston Post Road business told police that the man entered the store just before closing, at about 9 p.m.
The suspect reportedly approached the clerk and stated, “I hate to do this to you but I’m going to… this is a hold up.”
"The male then opened a brown leather bag and showed the clerk a black pistol and placed it back in the bag," the report states. "The clerk turned over a small amount of cash and his personal laptop. The suspect then left the store, fleeing in an unknown direction."
Orange Police said a K-9 track led to the parking area behind the Sprint Store at 125 Boston Post Road, but terminated there with negative results on locating the suspect.
Description of the Suspect
Police say the suspect is described as a black male, approximately 50 to 60 years old. He is about 6-feet tall, dark skinned, clean shaven, and thin. He was wearing a black suit with a white shirt and black tie.
Anybody with information is asked to call Detective Brian Petrucelli at 203-891-2138.
