Long John Silver’s robbery in Hampton
Police in Hampton need your help solving a robbery.
It happened last night at the Long John Silver’s in the 900 block of Big Bethel Road.
They think it could be the latest in a string of robberies by the same person. For this latest one – police say a man walked in just after 10 p.m. Monday night – pulled out a gun, and demanded money.
He got away with the cash.
No one was hurt, officials say.
Police are now looking for an African-American man in his thirties. They say he’s about 5’8 and between 180 and 200 pounds and was wearing a fake beard.
The description of the suspect – including that fake beard – is similar to the description of the man who robbed the Family Dollar on Aberdeen Road in Hampton earlier this month.
In that case – the workers at the store ran from the robber, and he didn`t get any money.
That same person is suspected of robbing more than 20 places on the Peninsula over the past 11 months.
