Fayetteville PD look for robbery, assault suspect

Fayetteville police officers are looking for a suspect wanted in connection with robbing a Dollar General Store on Raeford Road more than a week ago.

The robbery took place on Feb. 18 around 5:30 p.m. at the Dollar General at 7071 Raeford Road.

Police say the suspect entered the store and was hiding items from the store. As the suspect attempted to leave, an employee confronted him. The suspect grabbed the employee, pushed him outside and began assaulting the employee.

A bystander eventually came to assist the store employee.

The suspect was last seen running behind a nearby Food Lion Shopping Center.

Anyone with information concerning the identity of the suspect is asked to call Detective J. Nevitt with the Fayetteville Police Department at (910) 433-1856 or Crimestoppers at (910) 483-TIPS (8477).
