Police say the robber was a black man, 5'8" to 5'10" tall, weighing 160-170 pounds, approximately 30 years old and wearing a white t-shirt, blue jeans, a white bandanna and a dark hat.

If you know the man in the photo, please contact Pitt-Greenville Crimestoppers at 252-758-7777.

    WOW! How old are most of us that are leaving comments? This is not an issue of race, this is an issue of people simply losing their minds! It is a shame that racism still exist in America and that many are still being stereotyped by where they live, what they wear, who their parents are (the lifestyle they led), where they went to school, etc. Get over and beyond this mess already! The man simply lost his mind! End of story!

    You people have nothing better to do than to sit on this website and talk about race. It does not matter if you are purple if you do the crime you do the time (should be). There are just as many white people that commit crimes (I am white) that black's do. GET OVER IT!!!!
