A man who robbed a Beverly Domino's Pizza worker at knifepoint Saturday remained at large Monday, with the Beverly Police Department requesting the public's help in determining who the perpetrator was.
"We're hoping someone might have seen or known the suspect. He was supposedly hanging around just outside the store for 15 to 20 minutes before he entered," said Beverly Police Chief Mark Sams.
Once inside the shop the man produced a large pocketknife that he showed to the counter clerk and then demanded money.
"She backed up and he went behind the counter and took money out of the cash register," Sams said. "Then he fled on foot."
He said the clerk and a delivery driver were working at the Fifth Street store at the time of the heist, but the driver was on a run when the robbery occurred around 10:30 p.m.
"No one was injured and there was no altercation," Sams said.
The suspect was described as a thin unshaven white male, between 6 feet, 3 inches and 6 feet, 7 inches tall. He wore a long-sleeved black Under Armour shirt with a black short-sleeved pullover on top as well as dark pants and tennis shoes. He was also wearing some type of gloves.
Chief Deputy Mark Warden with the Washington County Sheriff's Office is assisting with the investigation.
"There are no leads at this time," he said. "We had a person of interest that night, but he was released after interrogation."
Sams added that there are cameras at the pizza store and video from that equipment is being reviewed.
Anyone with information about the suspect or the robbery should contact the Beverly Police at 984-2611, or the Washington County Sheriff's Office at 376-7070, Ext. 0.
