Suspect wanted in Newport armed robbery

Posted: Updated:
BEAUFORT, N.C. - Police are looking for the suspect that robbed two women at an area Dollar General.

It happened Sunday night at 7111 US Hwy 70 East.

Officers say the employees had just closed up for the night and were walking to their vehicles when the masked suspect ran up to them wielding a small caliber handgun and demanded their purses and any cash on hand. The women gave over their belongings and weren’t injured in the robbery.

The suspect then fled on foot toward Bayberry Road, crossing over both lanes of US Hwy 70. He’s described as a white male wearing a black ski mask, hooded camouflage coat, and faded blue jeans.

If you have any information about the incident, you’re asked to contact Newport Police @ 223-5111 or email newportpolice@newportpolice-nc.org.
