Baltimore County police today asked the public's help in identifying a man sought in an October armed robbery of a 7-Eleven convenience store in the Pikesville area.

Investigators are also trying to find a possible witness to the crime, which was caught on video surveillance cameras, police said.

According to authorities, the suspect entered the 7-Eleven in the 600 block of Reisterstown Road during the early morning hours of Oct. 14. The man pulled out a gun, threatened the clerk and demanded cash from the register, police said. He ran from the area after taking the money.

Police described the suspect as a black 20- to 29-year-old, with a medium to heavy build. He was last seen wearing a baggy, white T-shirt, faded blue jeans and dark shoes. During the robbery, he tried to cover his face with a red bandanna and carried a black, semiautomatic handgun, authorities said.

Surveillance cameras also recorded images of a possible witness who was in the store a few hours before the robbery. Police would like to talk to that man.

Anyone with information regarding the suspect, or the possible witness, is urged to call Baltimore County police at 410-307-2020 or Metro Crime Stoppers at 1-866-7-LOCKUP (1-866-756-2587). Callers can remain anonymous, and those calling Metro Crime Stoppers might be eligible for a cash reward up to $2,000.
