Two men, one of them barefoot, rob Mr. Mike's in Manchester
MANCHESTER - A barefoot man and his partner robbed Mr. Mike's convenience store and gas station early Sunday morning.
The robbery happened about 1 a.m. at the 1932 Wellington Road business.
According to a police news release, the two men entered the store separately, but it was apparent to the store clerk that they were together because they spoke to each other once both were inside. Each brought items to the counter and pulled out some money, but together they did not have enough to cover the purchases.
One of the men left the store to go back to his car to get more money. He returned and the clerk opened the cash register drawer to continue the transaction. When she did, one of the men grabbed her hands, pinning them momentarily to the drawer. The clerk pulled her hands away, and the man grabbed the cash in the drawer and both fled they store. They were last seen leaving in a black four-door sedan.
The barefoot man is described as white, 45 to 55 years old, about 5-foot-5 to 5-foot-7, balding and wearing glasses. He wore a red sweatshirt that had a white circular symbol on the front with the number '81' and the words 'Support Manchester' encircling it, and jeans.
The second man, who grabbed the cash, was white, six-feet tall and had a shaved head. He wore a dark green and blue longsleeve shirt and jeans.
