Rochester, MN (KROC AM News) - Rochester Police have released some photos of the man who assaulted an employee of a convenience store during a robbery last weekend.

Investigators have also released a photo of the “hoodie” jacket worn by the robber, which he discarded after he fled from the Holiday Store along 37th Street Northwest early Saturday. Police note the jacket has some fairly distinctive markings and are hoping someone will recognize it and help identify the robber.
