Connecticut State Police are on the lookout for two suspects, one a juvenile, who allegedly robbed rest area businesses on the Merritt Parkway at gunpoint.

The robbery took place around 8:34 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 31, on the Merritt Parkway rest area southbound in Fairfield, said the Connecticut State Police.

Witnesses on the scene described the suspect as a black male,  approximately 5-foot-8,  wearing a mask, black sweatshirt, grey sweatpants, and red sneakers who was accompanied by a juvenile black male wearing a green coat and tan pants. 

The adult male displayed a black handgun while the juvenile stood by the door. The two suspects fled the scene with an undisclosed amount of cash, state police said.

State Police K-9 units arrived on scene and performed a track which yielded negative results.

"Fortunately no one was injured during the commission of this crime," state police said. "We are seeking assistance from the public."

 Anyone with any information which could aid investigators in identifying the individuals involved are asked to contact Troop G-Bridgeport at 1-800-575-6330 or 203-696-2500 in reference to case #1900051366. Calls can be made anonymously.
