The Connecticut Post reports the suspect was wearing an army green zip-up hoodie, blue jeans and black sneakers, and obscured his face with sunglasses and a tan trapper-style hat.

Police Capt. Frank Eannotti says the suspect appears to be a white or Hispanic man in his 20s or 30s.

The attending employee was not injured in the robbery. Anyone with information is asked to contact police.
