WATERFORD TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WXYZ) - A gunman who demanded money from a 7-11 cashier claiming his mother was dying of cancer is still on the run.
Waterford Township Police say the white male held up the store Wednesday, September 12 at 10:37 p.m.
The store is located on Crescent Lake Road near Pontiac Lake Road.
The 58-year-old clerk told officers that the man pointed a long-barreled pistol at her and demanded cash from the register.
That’s when he told her his mother was dying of cancer.
She opened the cash register and placed an undisclosed amount of money on the counter.
He swiftly picked it up and then walked calmly out the store’s front door.
He was wearing a dark-colored hoodie and a camouflage baseball hat.
Police say he fled in a dark-colored vehicle – possibly a four-door car.
If you know who the suspect is or have any information about the robbery, you’re asked to contact Waterford Township Police Detective Mike Morgan at (248) 618-6664.
