Police seek man they say threatened to kill clerk, stole game console

SALISBURY, NC (WBTV) - Salisbury Police are hoping someone can recognize the man in a surveillance picture who they believe stole a game console from a local business.

The robbery occurred on March 11, around 2:30 p.m. at the Gamestop store on Faith Rd.

He reportedly told her "I don't want to put my hands on you , but I'll kill you if I have to."

The robber took the box and left the store.
