Officers were dispatched to Galloway’s convenience store on Pisgah Drive around 10 p.m. Tuesday on a call involving a man who had just robbed the store at gunpoint. Initial reports indicate the suspect brandished a large handgun and demanded money, then ran out of the store and headed on foot toward Canton.
The man is described as a dark-skinned black male about 5 feet 5 inches tall, weighing about 160 pounds, wearing a dark hoodie, dark pants, and a dark scarf across the lower part of his face. A surveillance photo is attached.
Anyone having any information regarding the suspects’ identity or whereabouts should not approach, but instead call 911 or the Haywood County Sheriff’s Office at (828) 452-6666.
