SOUTHINGTON, Conn. (WTNH) — Southington police are searching for the suspect believed to be involved in two robberies at the same convenience store.

According to police, on Dec. 27 just after 12 midnight, the suspect entered the Henny Penny located at 273 Meriden-Waterbury Turnpike and browsed for several minutes before going behind the counter and displaying a knife or a tool. The suspect then allegedly pushed the clerk, pried open the cash register, and took cash before leaving the scene.

Officials say a light-colored sedan was seen fleeing the area.
