Hermiston Police are searching for a suspect in an armed robbery that happened late Thursday night.
Officers were called to 11th Street Market around 11:56 p.m. for reports of a man who had taken out a handgun and demanded money. The male clerk complied with the demand and gave a minor amount of cash to the robber, who then left on foot heading south.
Officers arrived and searched the area around the business at 425 N.W. 11th Street.
Officers say that after reviewing video footage, they are not able to determine the race of the suspect. They released a still photo of the suspect taken from video, which shows a person in a gray hooded sweatshirt, in a black ski mask and a dark-colored pea coat with buttons.
Officers said they also determined the man is between 5 feet 6 inches and 6 feet tall, and was wearing black and white Nike shoes, as well as a ring on the middle finger of his left hand.
Anyone with information about the robbery is asked to call Lt. Randy Studebaker at 541-667- 5095.
