CHICOPEE, Mass. (WWLP) – Police need your help identifying a suspect who robbed and assaulted a CVS employee on Memorial Drive early Wednesday morning.

According to Chicopee Police Department spokesman Officer Mike Wilk, the suspect pictured went into the CVS store located at 1616 Memorial Drive, picked a few items and brought them to the register.
