Exxon store robbed at knifepoint

MERRIMACK – He shouldn’t have obeyed his thirst – and underage drinking might be the least of the laws he broke.

About 11:25 a.m. on Monday a young man described as being in his late teens held up the Exxon convenience store and gas station at 1 Continental Blvd., brandishing a knife and then making off with cash and a 20-pack of Budweiser bottles, police say.

The gas station clerk described the suspect as a white male, 5-foot-6 to 5-foot-9, having a slim build and sporting short hair and tattoos the length of his left arm, police said.

He was last seen running out of the store toward Continental Boulevard with the beer in tote.

Police are asking the public’s help in nabbing the robber.
