Newport News police need your help to find a man accused of robbery.

They say on November 4, 2012 at about 9:32 P.M. they responded to the Dollar General at 15435 Warwick Boulevard in reference to a robbery.

When officers arrived, they say the suspect was already gone.

They say the suspect went into the Dollar General store and demanded the clerk to hand over the money.

They say he had his hand in his jacket pocket and implied that he had a weapon, but no weapon was ever displayed. 

The suspect was last seen going through a gap between the stores and behind the shopping center.
