The Niagara Falls Police Department is asking for the public’s help regarding a violent armed robbery that occurred this morning at approximately 7 a.m. at the gas station at Buffalo Avenue and 63rd Street.

A suspect armed with a hammer attacked a female clerk, causing serious injuries, before stealing cash and merchandise from the store. The suspect was last seen walking east on Buffalo Avenue from 68th Street.

During the course of the robbery, a male customer who was driving a black Acura sedan came into the store and had an interaction with the suspect, as the suspect appeared to pretend that he was the store clerk. Detectives are trying to locate that male customer to talk to him.

Detectives are asking anyone who may have seen this suspect, or has information regarding his identity, to contact Niagara Falls Police Department criminal investigation division detectives at 716-286-4553 or call the general information number at 716-286-4711.
