BREWER, Maine — A man who robbed a convenience store on North Main Street in Brewer on Monday afternoon remained at large Tuesday, according to police.

The store was robbed by a single suspect, according to Brewer Deputy Police Chief Jason Moffitt. No weapon was displayed in the robbery, according to Moffitt.

The robbery was reported shortly after 4 p.m., Moffitt said. The suspect, an African-American male between 5 feet, 7 inches and 5 feet, 10 inches tall, fled the scene.

The robber was clean shaven, had a thin build and was wearing loose black pants, a brown stocking cap and a dark gray hooded sweatshirt, Moffitt said.

Moffitt did not disclose what the suspect got away with. The robber fled up North Main Street and may have crossed the Penobscot Bridge on foot into Bangor.

The incident prompted a response from multiple agencies, including Bangor, Brewer and Holden police and the Penobscot County Sheriff’s Office, which provided a canine to track the suspect.

Anyone with information on the robbery is asked to call Brewer police at 989-7001.
