CHATTANOOGA (WRCB) -- Crime Stoppers hopes you have help solve a stick-up, that likely dampened the holidays for a store clerk.
Police are trying to track down the suspect who robbed a yogurt shop clerk, at gunpoint. Police are hoping you'll see something in the surveillance shots that can put them on his trail.
Cool Swirls is a frozen yogurt shop on East Brainerd Road.
It may not appear to be a likely target for thieves but an armed robbery suspect came busting through the door on New Years Eve. It was around 8:30, the clerk inside told police the man flashed a silver handgun and demanded the money.
Investigators say he forced the clerk into a back room, took her cell phone and told her to wait before leaving.
You can see the robber cloaked most of his face, except his eyes, and detectives are hoping someone will recognize the man.
They say they're looking for a slim black male who's about 5' 10" tall.
If you recognize the suspect or remember something you might have seen that night at Cool Swirls. Please call Crime Stoppers the number is 688-3333. You could get a cash reward.
