Stamford police are seeking the public's help in locating an armed robbery suspect who assaulted two female employees at Mega Express Check Cashing Business and robbed money from the store at gunpoint.
The suspect, who has been identified as Parim Vrzivoly, 35, of 631 Fairfield Ave., Stamford, waited for the 341 West Main St. for two female employees to unlock the front door when the business opened on Friday, July 3 and then pulled a handgun on them and pushed them to the back of the store, police said. He kept the gun pointed at them as he struck and kicked them and demanded they open the safe, according to police.
Vrzivoly made off with an undisclosed amount of cash from the safe and fled on foot in the direction of Wilson Street, police said.
Stamford police processed the scene and reviewed surveillance footage. They also found evidence that identified Vrzivoly as the suspect and obtained a warrant charging him with first-degree robbery.
Police swarmed his Fairfield Avenue home, but couldn't find him. They learned he may be staying at a New York City hotel and driving a black 2008 Jeep Wrangler with Connecticut plates marked 897-WTF.
Vrzivoly remains at large and Stamford police are still searching for him.
Police described Vrzivoly as 5-foot-10, 190 pounds and 30 35 years old, according to police. He was wearing a black Under Armour hat, a maroon hooded sweatshirt and dark shorts and had his hood up over the hat, police said. He also had a dark backpack with him.
