Police: Hammer-wielding man robbed liquor store

Tips being sought in Richmondville robbery

A liquor store in the village of Richmondville was robbed Tuesday night by a hammer-wielding masked man who snatched the cash register and ran out of the store, the Schoharie County Sheriff's Office reported today.



Investigators said a white male wearing a ski mask entered Elroy's Liquor Store at 334 Main St. shortly before 7 p.m., displayed the hammer and demanded money.



The culprit was described by police as having a slim build, standing 5 feet 7 inches and weighing about 150 pounds. 
The man then fled on foot; no vehicle was observed. 

Police urged anyone with information about the crime to contact the Sheriff's Office by calling (518) 295-8114.
