May 28, 2019

STOUGHTON, Mass. (AP) — Police in Massachusetts are looking for a man they say used a meat cleaver to rob a gas station over the weekend.

Stoughton police on Facebook said a thin white man dressed all in black, including a mask and gloves, rode a bike to the Shell gas station’s convenience store at about 1 a.m. Sunday.

The man brandished a meat cleaver, chased the clerk behind the counter and forced the worker to empty the cash register.

The suspect left with the cash and rode away on the bicycle.

Police used a dog to look for the suspect but were unable to locate him. He’s described as a white male with a thin build, about 5-feet, 10-inches to 6-feet tall.
