The Howell Police Department is searching for a suspect in the robbery of the WaWa at the intersection of Route 9 and White Street Monday night.
Capt. Andy Kudrick said the robbery happened around 9:45 when a suspect described as being a white male, around 5-9 with facial stubble with curly or 'afro-like' dark brown hair approached an attendant inside a kiosk at the fueling station.
Kudrick said the man was wearing a black zip-up "hoodie," and held what was described as a steak knife to the attendant's throat while demanding cash. After getting the cash from the attendant he fled in a dark colored vehicle believed to be a Subaru BRZ or a Scion FR-S that was black or purple.
The attendant was not injured during the incident according to Kudrick. Another attendant watched the car as it drove away near White Street and got a partial view of the license plate which they said had the last characters of possibly CAA or CAH.
Anyone with information about the robbery is asked to contact Det. Anthony Romano at 732-938-4575 ext. 2879.
