2 suspects wanted after armed robbery at Pine St. food store in Northampton

Hampshire County

No one was hurt after an armed robbery at a food store on Pine Street in Florence Friday night, police say.

Police are now looking for two men who they say are suspects in the armed robbery.

Northampton Police Sgt. Josef Barszcz told 22News officers were called to the Sam’s Food Store located at 198 Pine Street for the incident shortly before 6 p.m.

Authorities say a gun was shown during the robbery but no one was hurt. The two suspects got away with an undisclosed amount of money.

The men drove off in the Chevy Equinox pictured above, the second photo shows one of the suspects.

“I was immediately worried because it seemed like a little bit more of a serious scenario, then all of a sudden the crime scene van pulled up, so I was just a little concerned, they are nice old ladies and everyone who works there is super friendly,” Christopher Hirano-Hubbard told 22News.

Photos sent by a 22News viewer shows at least two Northampton Police cruisers and a crime scene van parked inside of a shopping plaza.

Sgt. Barszcz told 22News police are still looking into the incident.

Anyone with information is asked to call Northampton Police at (413) 587-1100.
