Ramsey police seek armed robber of SuperAmerica

Ramsey Police are on the look-out for a man who robbed a SuperAmerica clerk at gunpoint during the early morning hours of Monday.

According to Capt. Tim Frankfurth of the Ramsey Police Department, officers at 1:44 a.m. Oct. 14 were dispatched to the SuperAmerica station at 14000 St. Francis Blvd. NW. Multiple police departments assisted in setting up a perimeter and the Anoka Police Department brought in a K9 officer, but the suspect was not located.

The suspect was described as a six-foot tall “husky” black man with dark eyes, weighing between 220 and 250 pounds, according to Frankfurth. No age estimation was given. At the time of the robbery, the suspect was wearing a black hooded sweatshirt, black pants, gloves and a red bandanna was partially covering his face.

Frankfurth said the clerk told police that the man approached her in the store and at one point put his hand on her throat when he demanded she open the cash register while pointing a firearm at her. He made off with an undisclosed amount of money.

Anybody with information on this case should call the Ramsey Police Department at 763-427-6812.
