Pet Store Robbed on Tuesday Night

A pet store was robbed by a man who demanded money from a clerk on Tuesday night.

A pet store in Danvers Plaza was robbed on Tuesday night.

The robbery was reported at 6:20 p.m. when a male between 40 and 50 years old entered the Pet Life store at 301 Newbury St. (Route 1) and came up behind the clerk, demanding that they give him money. The clerk handed over an unspecified amount of money and nobody was hurt, said Danvers Police Officer Eric Clarizia.

As of late Tuesday night, there were no arrests in connection with the robbery.

The robbery was classified as an unarmed robbery since no weapon was shown, although it was alluded that he may possibly have a weapon.

The robber was described as being 6 feet, 2 inches tall or taller, thin, with a clean shave and strawberry blonde hair. He was wearing a green hooded windbreaker at the time of the robbery, police said.

The robbery remains under investigation by detectives, who plan to review security tape.

It is the second robbery of its type in two days in the area. On Monday night in Beverly, a man who said he had a gun but did not show it robbed the Sunoco station on Brimbal Avenue.
