$5,000 offered to nab Squirrel Hill supermarket’s robbers

A $5,000 reward is being offered for help in solving the Sept. 17 robbery of a Squirrel Hill Giant Eagle, city police said Thursday.

Two men entered the store on Murray Avenue at 7:15 a.m., and one suspect — who had a handgun — jumped the front counter of the office.

The other suspect, who was not armed, stood outside the office while the other man ordered the employee inside the office to get on the floor, city police said. That man then took an undisclosed amount of money from the cash register, and both men ran from the store.

Both robbers are described as black, about 5 feet 10 inches tall, with medium builds and wearing dark clothing.

Anyone with information is asked to call the city police robbery squad at 412-323-7151.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
