HUBERT, N.C. (WNCT) – The Onslow County Sheriff’s Office is asking the public for help identifying a man they said robbed a Hubert store at gunpoint.

Deputies said a man entered the Hubert Tobacco store Thursday evening, pointed a gun at the clerk and demanded money.

The Sheriff’s Office said the suspect took money and cigarettes and ran out toward the rear of the business where he got into an older model white 4-door sedan and headed in the direction of a mobile home park directly behind the business.

Deputies said the suspect is described as a black male with a thin build between the ages of 20-30 who wore a yellow plastic glove on his right hand and brandished a silver pistol.
