Pair sought in armed robbery of Westminster Rite Aid worker

November 17, 1995

Police are looking for a man and a woman they believe are responsible for the armed robbery of a Rite Aid employee in Westminster yesterday afternoon.

According to police, an employee of the Rite Aid in the 140 Village shopping center was driving to the bank with the store's money bag when she noticed a man in his 20s arguing with a woman on the sidewalk.

The employee told police that the woman, who had blond hair and was short with a medium build, stepped off the sidewalk directly in front of her car.

The man, who had long blond hair and a scar on his left cheek, opened the car door and threatened the employee with a hunting knife. The man, who was wearing a black coat and blue jeans, took the money bag and fled on foot.

Police said the woman, who was wearing a white coat, also disappeared after the robbery.

Anyone with information about the crime is asked to call Westminster City Police at 848-4646 or, if they wish to remain anonymous, 857-TIPS.
