Maple Shade Police have released a sketch of a man wanted for questioning in connection with a afternoon at Rewind, a secondhand store on East Main Street.
Police said the man was seen minutes before the robbery in the area of L&S Chocolates, also on East Main in Maple Shade. Police believe the suspect may have spent time visiting other stores on Main Street before deciding which one to rob.
According to police, Main Street was very busy Friday afternoon—with many pedestrians, shoppers and motorists in the area—leading them to believe a number of people saw the suspect prior to the crime.
He is described as a Caucasian or light-skinned Hispanic man, stocky build, about 5 feet 9 inches to 6 feet tall, unshaven with dark facial hair. He was wearing a white hooded sweatshirt, black sweatpants, and a dark winter hat at the time of the robbery.
Police said the suspect engaged the clerk in conversation about items for sale before pulling out a knife and demanding money from the register. The suspect fled out the back door with $150. The clerk was unharmed.
Police stress the man pictured in the sketch is only a person of interest at this point.
Anyone with information that could assist in the investigation is urged to contact Maple Shade Police at 856-234-8300.
