Police are searching for a man who allegedly robbed the Dari-Del on Bleecker Street in Utica on Labor Day.

While officers were on their way to investigate after a panic alarm had been activated at approximately 3:27pm, county 911 operators advised the UPD that a robbery had just taken place at the store.

According to witness accounts a man came into the store, slid over the counter, and threatened to stab the store clerk unless money from the cash drawer was given to him.  He took the cash and fled the store, driving off southbound on Culver Avenue in a blue-colored Ford Explorer.  The Explorer is possibly a late 90′s to early 2000′s model.

The suspect is white, about 5’11″ and thought to be in his mid 20′s with short brown hair.  At the time of the incident he was wearing a gray sleeveless shirt and a white towel covering the lower part of his face and right forearm.  It is thought that the towel may have been covering a distinctive tattoo or scars.

Anyone with information is asked to call Utica Police at: (315) 223.3510.

The Dari-Del on Bleecker has been the target of several robbery attempts in the past, including in February of this year.
