TILTON - Police are looking for man who held up a clerk at a downtown antique store with a handgun Thursday night.

Just before 5 p.m., the suspect walked into Ella's Antique and Consignment Store at 261 Main St., according to Police Chief Robert Cormier.

The suspect was wearing a dark ski mask and was 5 feet 8 inches to 6 feet tall, he said.

"The suspect pointed a handgun at the female clerk, demanding cash from the register, the victim's purse and the store night deposit bag," Cormier said in a press release.

The suspect then ordered the clerk into the bathroom "and told her not to come out," Cormier said.

The suspect then fled in an unknown direction on foot. Police said an undetermined amount of cash was taken.

Cormier said police are asking for the public's help in finding and arresting the suspect.

Anyone with information should contact Tilton Police at 286-4442, he said.
