FAIRHAVEN, Mass. (WPRI) — A man wearing a black mask and bandana used a brightly-colored weapon to rob a convenience store Sunday night, Fairhaven police said.
The robbery happened around 10:30 p.m. at Jackson’s Variety Store on Sconticut Neck Road. According to Fairhaven police, the store owner said the suspect, whom he described as a 5-foot-7-inch-tall slim black man, threatened him with a pink stun gun. The owner handed over cash, and the robber ran from the store.
