Rocky Mount police recovered a stolen vehicle Saturday, but the owner’s possessions — including shoes he was selling — were missing.
Authorities said a 33-year-old man was selling shoes from the trunk of his 2008 Chevrolet Impala on the 4500 block of Sunset Avenue when he was approached by a gunman. The suspect reportedly threatened him, stole his keys and fled the scene in the victim’s vehicle. The victim was not injured.
The suspect is described as a 16-to-20 year old black man, weighing about 160 pounds and wearing a black hooded sweatshirt. Anyone with information is asked to contact Crime Stoppers at 977-1111 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
