FRUITLAND, Md.- Police are asking the public's help in identifying a suspect wanted for holding up the Red Fox Market at 107 N. Fruitland Blvd. in Fruitland on Wednesday morning.

Fruitland police said that just before 8 a.m., an unknown male suspect entered the store, pointed a black and silver semiautomatic style handgun at the clerk and demanded cash. The suspect attempted to strike the clerk with the handgun before fleeing the store, according to investigators. Police said the suspect ran westbound, across South Fruitland Boulevard and then ran northbound between houses. A witness attempted to follow the suspect but lost sight of him near Hayward Avenue. 

The Wicomico County Sheriff's Office conducted a K9 track and while the suspect was not located, police said several items of evidence were located during the track. 

The suspect was described as a white or light skinned black male wearing a black mask, hooded camouflage coat and black pants. 

Fruitland police are asking anyone who may have been traveling in the area of the robbery or who may have observed anything suspicious around that time to call (410) 548-2303. Direct all calls to Criminal Investigations, Detective Beaver or the duty officer. 

The suspect should be considered armed and dangerous, police said.
