Police search for armed robbery suspect
The Fall River Police Department is asking the public to help them track down an armed robbery suspect.
Authorities said a man walked into the 7-Eleven at 1040 North Main St. around 3:30 a.m. on Sunday and demanded money from the clerk.
Witnesses said the suspect, who they described as a thin Hispanic man potentially in his 20s, was wielding a hammer, which was “protruding from his pocket while threatening to use it.”
The man, said police, was wearing blue jeans, a red T-shirt with white sleeves, and a dark-colored hat.
Police also said the man had facial hair, along with “a distinct tattoo on the left side of his neck.”
