Police are looking for individuals who witnessed or have pertinent information about an armed robbery that took place in the parking lot of a Target location in the area.

Officers in New Haven County were dispatched to the Ansonia Target, located at 20 West Main St, at approximately 12:15 p.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 21. 

The victims, said police, were meeting with the armed suspect to complete what they thought was an online transaction. 

The unknown robber reportedly displayed a handgun and robbed the victims before fleeing the scene as a passenger in a light-colored sedan with tinted windows. 

Police said that the suspect is a light-skinned black male who was wearing a black hooded sweatshirt and a blue PPE mask at the time of the incident.
