Bath police investigate robbery at Cumberland Farms
BATH — Police are looking for the man who robbed a Route 1 convenience store Monday night, Oct. 19.
Officers responded to an alarm at Cumberland Farms at 10:30 p.m. They said the suspect is a white male in his 40s and between 5 feet 9 inches and 6 feet tall, with a slender build. He allegedly demanded cash from the store clerk, who handed him an undisclosed amount of money before he left.
The man threatened to use a firearm, according to police, who said witnesses mentioned seeing a flash of metal from the robber's clothing.
The suspect wore a black ski mask with two eye slits, a camouflage jacket with a black shirt underneath and dark blue or black jeans. He is described as having blue eyes and was reported by the clerk to have what appeared to be facial hair, perhaps a goatee, which protruded from the bottom of his mask.
The perpetrator reportedly left in a Dodge Neon or older Ford Taurus, silver or gold in color, with tinted windows. The vehicle had Maine plates which are believed to end in the letters "RL."
People with any information are encouraged to call the Police Department at 443-5563.
