Deli Robbed at Gunpoint in Covington
Gutierrez Deli was robbed at gunpoint late Wednesday morning and the suspect made off with cash. The owner of the deli, located on Lee Street at the intersection of Martin Luther King Bouelvard and the former site of Sue's Deli, had gone to the basement when the suspect entered demanding that the female clerk hand over cash from the register. She complied and no one was hurt.
Police think the suspect may have been casing the place and saw an opportunity to strike when the owner went to the basement.
The suspect is described a white male in his forties around 5'6"-5'7" and weighing around 170lbs. He had brown hair, a scruffy beard and was last seen wearing blue jeans and a dark jacket. The suspect made off in a 2008 silver Chevrolet SUV with dark tinted windows.
Police are reviewing surveillance video which shows the suspect and the vehicle.
