Authorities are still investigating an armed robbery reported last weekend.

A man was walking to his car outside the Fort Dick Market at about 5:45 a.m. on June 8 when he saw another man sitting in a black four-door car. The other man stepped out of his car, pointed a small frame revolver at the victim and made off with his money, watch and phone, according to the Del Norte County Sheriffs Office.

The victim was uninjured.

The gunman was described as white, about 5 feet 7 inches tall, weighing 100–120 pounds with sandy blond hair.

His car was described as a black, late-model four-door Mazda in poor condition. It had an Oregon license plate beginning with AW or AV, according to the Sheriff’s Office.

Deputies say there was a second person inside the vehicle at the time of the robbery.

Anyone with information about the robbery is asked to call the Del Norte County Sheriff’s Office at 464-4191 or text 847411 plus their message to “dnsotip.”
