Holland authorities seek a suspect in an overnight armed robbery.

The Holland Department of Public Safety says officers were dispatched just after midnight on Friday to the Windmill Mobil Mart at 1122 Lincoln Ave.

Police say the man approached a clerk and another employee closing the store and forced them back inside with a handgun.

He then allegedly assaulted the clerk while demanding money from the store’s safe.

The suspect is described as a black male approximately six feet tall with a medium build.

He possibly left the scene in a dark-colored four-door vehicle driven by another person.

Police ask anyone with information to contact the department at 616-355-1100 or policetips@cityofholland.com, or submit information anonymously through Silent Observer.
