Witness described attempted robbery suspect

ELK RAPIDS — Village police seek the public’s help finding a man wanted in the attempted robbery of an Elk Rapids pharmacy.

The man wore a face mask Monday when he walked behind the counter at the Corner Druggist and demanded drugs. Employees didn’t get a look at the man’s face before he was rebuffed and ran away, but Elk Rapids police found a witness who provided a description.

Officer Tom Near said a woman got a look at the man’s face outside the store before he pulled his mask down and went inside.

The suspect is described as a stocky man from 18 to his mid-20s in age and between 5 feet and 5 feet 5 inches tall. The man had dark brown bushy hair with natural waves. He had sideburns and appeared unshaven.

Near said police received several tips since the robbery, but none panned out.

Members of the public with information are asked to contact Officer Chuck Horn at Elk Rapids Police Department at 231-264-6592.
