Rocklin police seek to identify a man who robbed a business on Sunset Boulevard on Thursday night.

Officers responded to the 2100 block of Sunset Boulevard about 11:26 p.m. regarding a report of a robbery in progress at a 7-Eleven store. The robber fled before they arrived.

An employee reported that a man walked into the store and directed the employee to give him money from the cash register, according to a Police Department news release. The man was aggressive and made the clerk believe that he had a weapon, although no weapon was seen, police said.

The man took the money and was last seen walking northbound on West Oaks Boulevard.

The man, shown in a surveillance photo, is described as white, approximately 5 feet 9 inches tall and weighing 185 pounds. He was last seen wearing blue jeans, a dark blue hooded sweatshirt, black sunglasses and an orange bandana.

Police said they do not know whether the man is connected to other robberies in the area.

Anyone with information pertaining to the case is asked to call the Rocklin Police Department at 916-625-5400.
