Man robbed at knife point outside Yarmouth supermarket

YARMOUTH – Yarmouth Police report that on Tuesday at 1:46 p.m., Patrol Officer Mary Gibney was dispatched to Stop & Shop on Long Pond Drive in South Yarmouth for a report of an armed robbery.  The store manager reported there was a male waiting outside and stated he had been robbed at knife point outside the store.

Upon arrival, Patrol Officer Gibney met with a Stop & Shop Loss Prevention Officer who was assisting the victim at his vehicle parked on the north side of the building.  The victim provided a description of the suspect as follows: white male, approximately at least 6-feet tall, dark colored knit hat, dark colored mask, dark colored spring or windbreaker type jacket. The victim further reported that the suspect ran towards the back of Stop & Shop, through the fence into Swan Pond Village, briefly turned left and then ran right.

Yarmouth Police Patrol Officers, Proactive Anti-Crime officers, detectives as well as K9 Officer Marc Thibeault and his partner, Torres, saturated the area looking for the suspect.

Additional information from the victim of the crime indicates that the suspect approached him on the north side of the Stop & Shop building and confronted him as he was placing groceries in his vehicle. The suspect threatened the victim with a large knife and demanded money. The suspect obtained a small amount of cash and then ran off.

This is the second armed robbery in the town of Yarmouth within the past two days following a robbery at Timmy’s Roast Beef on Route 28 on Monday.  Investigators are aggressively seeking information about either of these two crimes.  Anyone with any information is urged to contact the Yarmouth Police Department at 508.775.0445.

The Yarmouth Police Department will keep everyone updated on these two pending cases as information develops. The cases may not be related and both suspects should be considered armed and dangerous.
