This was the fifth robbery at the Canterbury store since June 2016.

Delaware State Police are looking for an armed man who held up a clerk at the Canterbury Shore Stop, 8953 S. Dupont Highway, at 2:20 a.m. Sunday, Jan. 15 Delaware State Police spokesman Master Cpl. Gary Fournier said.

A man came into the store two minutes before the robbery, made a purchase and left, getting into a car parked in the lot just north of the store.

A second man then came up to the clerk at the counter, showed a handgun and demanded cash. The clerk turned over the money and the man ran off.

The clerk was not hurt, Fournier said.

The robber is a black man, about 5 feet, 9 inches to 5 feet 10 inches tall, weighing about 180 to 185 pounds and wearing a light colored sweatshirt, blue jeans, and tan shoes.

The first man who came in was wearing a black T-shirt, dark pants, and red sneakers.

The pair is thought to be driving a dark-colored Ford Fusion with an unknown registration.

This is the fifth robbery at the Canterbury store since June 2016. There has been a total of eight holdups there since October 2010.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Troop 3 Major Crimes Unit at 302-697-2104.
