Fairfield police are searching for a man who allegedly robbed a Radio Shack store this evening. The robbery occurred shortly after 5:25 p.m. at the store located in the 2400 block of North Texas Street, according to police. There were two employees in the store when the suspect entered. He gained the attention of the clerk by asking for assistance, and when the employee approached the suspect, he showed a black semi-automatic handgun in his waistband and demanded the cash in the register, police said. The employee put the money in a store bag and gave it to the suspect, who headed toward the exit. However, as he began to leave the store, another customer came in, according to police. The suspect saw that the customer had her wallet open, and waited for the customer to pay for a cell phone bill, at which point he demanded that the employee give him the additional money, police said. The suspect told both employees and the customer to walk toward the back of the store and then fled on foot before possibly getting into an older model Honda or Acura vehicle. The suspect is described as a black man who is about 35 years old and has a clean-cut goatee, according to police. He was wearing a black short-sleeved T-shirt and beige cargo shorts. No injuries were reported during the robbery.
