Police on Thursday asked the public to help them identify and find a thief whom they’ve labeled the “Purple-Gloved Perpetrator.”
Police say he is the man who robbed the High House Food Market at 832 Old Apex Road on April 1.
In a picture taken from a robbery surveillance video, the man is seen wearing a black outfit that includes a hooded jacket and covers his lower face as well as bright purple rubber gloves.
The man carried a knife, police said.
In the High House robbery, police said, the man went into the business about 9 p.m., jumped over the counter and took money from the cash register.
The video was recently recovered, police said.
Police ask anyone who has information about the man to call them at 919-469-4012 or to file an anonymous report with Cary Crime Stoppers at 919-460-4636. The call will be kept confidential if the caller requests that.
Crime Stoppers pays up to $1,500 for the arrest or indictment of those responsible for committing certain types of crimes.
