Police are seeking the public’s help to identify and locate the man pictured above who they say attempted to rob a Port Jefferson Station convenience store last week.
Police said the man simulated having a gun and ordered an employee to open the cash register at the 7-Eleven, located at 500 Old Town Road, on Feb. 18 at approximately 3:40 a.m.
The clerk fled the store and the man reached over the counter and tried to open the cash register, police said. He fled the store before any proceeds were taken.
The suspect is described as white, wearing a bulky, hooded navy blue jacket, black pants and dark shoes with white laces. He was driving a dark-colored van.
