The armed robbery Monday of a 7-Eleven in East Patchogue is not part of a pattern of holdups of the convenience store chain in Suffolk County, police said.

Monday's suspect escaped with some cash, though no one was injured during the 11:30 p.m.  holdup of the store at 139 Sunrise Hwy., Suffolk police said.

A man entered the convenience store, displayed what the clerk believed to be a gun and demanded cash, police said Tuesday. “The clerk complied, and the man fled the scene,” police said in a statement. They would not say how much money was taken.

Police said they believed one man committed armed robberies of three other 7-Elevens in East Farmingdale, West Babylon and Bay Shore from Friday to Sunday. The East Patchogue robbery was committed by another man, police said.

“The incident [in East Patchogue] does not appear to be related to any other recent robberies,” police said in a statement.

Detectives are asking anyone with information on the robbery to contact the Major Case Unit at 631-852-6555 or anonymously to Crime Stoppers at 800-220-TIPS.
