The Newark Police Department is asking for the public’s help to identify a woman caught on tape robbing a convenience store employee at gunpoint.
The robbery occurred at the Arrow Mart convenience store on North Main Street in the village.
Police say just after one o'clock Wednesday morning, a white female entered the store wearing black pants, a black hooded sweatshirt with the hood up.
After asking for cigarettes, the woman allegedly pulled what appeared to be a semi-automatic pistol out of her pocket. She demanded money from the clerk.
Police are asking the public for help in identifying the person who is holding the gun in the surveillance photo.
