Durham Police Asking for Information on Sweepstakes Robbery
Durham police investigators are trying to identify a man who robbed Pat’s Business Center Sweepstakes Café at 3115 Guess Road this afternoon.
A man armed with a gun entered the business around 4:50 p.m. and demanded money. He was last seen leaving in an older model white car, possibly a Toyota Avalon or Camry. The car had only one hubcap, which was on the left front tire.
The suspect was described as a dark-complected black male, 30 to 40 years old, 5 feet 7 inches to 5 feet 10 inches tall with a thin to medium build. He may have had dreadlocks under his cap. The suspect was wearing a dark hoodie, blue jeans, a black ball cap with a red brim and multicolored tennis shoes.
Anyone with information is asked to call Investigator D. Cramer at (919) 560-4440, ext. 29414 or CrimeStoppers at (919) 683-1200. CrimeStoppers pays cash rewards for information leading to arrests in felony cases and callers never have to identify themselves.
