A man who held the knife to the throat of a Clinton store employee, demanded money, then fled into the night is still at large two weeks later, according to Maine State Police.

The department made a posting about the robbery on its Facebook page Thursday in hopes of getting information about the man, who was described as 5 feet, 8 inches to 5 feet,10 inches tall. At the time of the robbery, he was wearing a white mask and a black hooded sweatshirt.

Maine Department of Public Safety spokesman Steve McCausland said Friday that no surveillance photos of the robber are available.

The robbery at Clinton Variety and Redemption Center happened about 11 p.m. June 10 when the man held a knife to the throat of a male employee described as elderly and demanded money from him. The robber fled with an undisclosed amount of money, according to the Facebook post.

Maine State Police Trooper G.J. Neagle asked that anyone who can help identify the robber or has more information about the night in question call the Augusta Regional Communication Center at 624-7076 and ask for him.
