An employee at on Black Rock Turnpike was robbed at gunpoint Sunday evening, police said.

The employee, who was alone in the store and preparing to close down for the night, told police that a male unknown to her entered the store, showed her the gun he was carrying, and told her to give him all the money in the register, according to the police report.

The suspect was in his late 20’s, standing at 5-foot-10 to 6 feet tall, with short blonde hair and a slim build, the employee told police. He was unshaven, with blue eyes and donning a black or dark hooded top and jeans.

The suspect did not point the gun at the employee, according to the account. She was uninjured.

An independent witness told police the suspect left the area in a silver or gray Infiniti or Nissan.

Police are also investigating another robbery from Sunday, this time at on Villa Avenue. The incidents are unrelated, police said.

The Walgreens store manager saw a white male – described as in his mid-40s, 6-feet tall, of medium build with shoulder length brown hair, a mustache, and wearing a tan jacket and jeans -- take some items without paying. The manager attempted to restrain the suspect in a bear hug; the suspect bit the manager on the wrist, police said.

The suspect managed to get away and drove off with another passenger in a gray 1993 Mercury Tracer, police said. The owner of the vehicle was identified as a Trumbull resident and police will apply for a warrant, according to the report.
