Police seek help finding robbery suspect

Man held up employee at gunpoint

The Hollister Police Department is asking the public for help identifying a man who robbed a convenience store at gunpoint early Monday morning.

About 1:36am May 20, an unknown man entered the Quik Stop at 1300 Fourth Street. He pointed a handgun at one of the store employees, and demanded money, according to a press release from the Hollister Police Department. The employee complied with the robber’s demands, and gave the suspect an undisclosed amount of money.

The suspect was described as a male adult, about 5-feet 7-inches tall, with a thin build, according to police. He was wearing a dark, long-sleeved hooded sweatshirt, black pants, white gloves and gray shoes. The robber’s face was completely covered with a dark clothing item during the incident.

Police released images from the store’s surveillance camera system in hopes that someone from the public can identify the suspect.
