A man wearing a surgical mask robbed someone at gunpoint last week on a trail in Wilmington, Massachusetts, police said Monday, releasing a sketch of the perpetrator.
The robbery, which "appears to be an isolated incident," took place behind the Wilmington Family Medical Center on Wednesday about 5:30 p.m., according to the Wilmington Police Department.
Brandishing a gun, the man demanded the victim's phone and jewelry, police said. The victim described the man as in his mid-40s, about 5-foot-8 and 180 lbs. with blue eyes, messy dark-blond hair and facial hair. He was wearing a dark blue T-shirt and dark brown pants.
The victim said that the police sketch released of the man makes him look younger than in real life, according to police.
