Police seek identity of man who robbed Little Caesars

Police have asked the public for help in identifying the man they say robbed a Little Caesars Pizza restaurant on Main Street Sunday afternoon and evaded a police search of the area.

A security camera in the restaurant captured an image of the suspect, who Patrol Sgt. Alden Weigelt of the Waterville Police Department described as about 5 feet 8 inches tall with black, slicked-back hair under a dark bandanna. The picture shows him wearing sunglasses, shorts and a dark T-shirt with a logo.

The man presented a note to a Little Caesars employee demanding cash from the register at about 1 p.m.

The man ran from the store with an undisclosed amount of cash.
