Three robbers sought

On cam­era: A sur­veil­lance shot of one sus­pect

Po­lice seek the pub­lic’s help in identi­fy­ing three men who robbed a May­fair con­veni­ence store on March 3.

Shortly after 3 a.m., three con­spir­at­ors ap­proached the 7-El­ev­en at 3301 Tyson Ave. One ac­com­plice stayed out­side as a lookout, while the oth­er two entered the store and de­man­ded cash and ci­gar­ettes from a clerk, po­lice said. One rob­ber in­dic­ated that he had a gun and the oth­er handed the clerk a back­pack, which the clerk filled with $140 cash and sev­er­al packs of ci­gar­ettes.

The three rob­bers then fled on foot west on Tyson Av­en­ue. One is a white man, about 20 years old, 5 feet 6 inches tall and 140 pounds. He wore a black “Nike” brand hood­ie, blue track pants and black gloves.

A second rob­ber is a white or His­pan­ic man, about 20 years old, 5 feet 8 inches tall and 130 pounds. He wore a mask over the lower part of his face, a black hood­ie, blue jeans and black gloves. He car­ried a black book bag.

Po­lice did not re­lease a de­scrip­tion of the lookout.
