Suspect uses a fake gun in robbery attempt

SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) – Police need your help in identifying a man who tried to rob the “Racing Mart” at 685 Sumner Avenue armed with a handgun on October 11th.

When the robber demanded for the money in the cash register, the cashier determined that the gun was fake and refused to give him any money. The robber than got nervous, panicked and his mask fell from his face exposing it to the store’s surveillance camera.

The robber then left in a Honda Accord that was reported stolen in East Longmeadow earlier that day.

The robber is also suspected of other robberies of Pride Gas Station.

Police are hoping that somebody can tip them off on who exactly this guy is. If you know, contact the Detective Bureau at (413) 787-6355 or “Text-a-Tip”
