Attempted robbery suspect sought

Police in two counties are looking for a suspect who attempted to rob two 7-Eleven stores on Sunday morning.

A man, described as having a deep voice who was dressed in jeans and a long-sleeved dark jacket with striped sleeves that may have been made by Adidas, tried to rob the 7-Eleven store at 9219 Winchester Road in Warren County at around 2:45 a.m. Sunday, according to a news release from the Warren County Sheriff’s Office.

“The subject was stopped by several customers in the store and then fled on foot from the store,” the release states. “Approximately 20 minutes later, a subject matching the same description attempted robbery of a 7-11 located in Clarke County.”

The suspect had on dark gloves and a black or gray shopping bag that covered his head.

“The suspect also brandished an unknown type weapon concealed in a shopping bag. The suspect did make statements that the weapon was a gun,” the release states.

Anyone with information on this case is asked to contact Sgt. Maxfield, of the Warren County Sheriff’s Office, at 540-635-7100 or sgtmaxfield@warrencountysheriff.org
