Bolton Gulf Attempted Robbery (Suspect Pic Included)
Upon arrival Troopers secured the scene, searched the area for the suspect, and initiated an investigation. Troopers learned that a female suspect entered the Bolton Gulf, confronted the clerk with a switchblade knife, and demanded the clerk give her the money from the register.
The female suspect moved toward the clerk and climbed on top of the sales counter. The clerk immediately retrieved his legally registered firearm, at which time the female suspect quickly climbed down from the counter and exited the store. No shots were fired, no injuries were reported. There was no merchandise or cash taken.
State Police Detectives from Eastern District Major Crime (EDMC) responded to the scene and assumed the investigation.
The suspect is described as a white female, approximately 5’4” tall with a thin build. The female suspect was wearing a dark colored coat, camouflage-style pants, a blue scarf, and a green Boonie hat/fishing-type cap. The knife is described as a switchblade with a white colored handle.
Anyone with information about this attempted robbery, or who knows the identity of the female suspect, is asked to call Troop K at 860-465-5400 or text tip711 with the information to 236748. All calls will be kept confidential.
