Danville Police searching for robbery suspects

Police are searching for the suspect in two commercial business robberies that occurred Sunday evening.

The first robbery occurred at the Food Lion grocery store located at 1461 South Boston Rd at 9:24 P.M.  At 9:40 P.M., while police were still on the first scene, a second robbery was reported at the Fas Mart convenience store, located at 1794 South Main Street.  The offender brandished a handgun and obtained money from the cashier at both businesses.

Based on surveillance videos, investigators believe the same man robbed both stores. The robber is described as a black male possibly with a beard protruding from a face mask.  He was wearing a red shirt in the Food Lion robbery and changed to white at the Fas Mart robbery, as seen in the attached photographs.  The jeans, shoes, mask, and physical features indicate the same individual is responsible for these two robberies. 

We are thankful that no one was injured in either incident. The robber made off with an undisclosed amount of money from each store.  The suspect was last seen going south on Highway 86 into North Carolina.  This is an active and ongoing investigations.  

Anyone who recognizes this individual is asked to contact the Danville Police Department or their local law enforcement through 911, but please avoid contact as he is considered armed and dangerous.
