Roseville police are searching for a man who robbed a liquor store and pepper-sprayed the clerk in the face on Tuesday.

The man took money from the cash register in the store in the 5100 block of Foothills Boulevard and the clerk’s personal property before pushing him to the ground and pepper-spraying him in the face. The description of the man is vague because he wore a ski mask to cover his face and had the hood of his bright blue sweatshirt pulled over his head. He was also wearing a black puffy jacket over the sweatshirt, khaki pants and white sneakers.

The man headed northbound toward McAnally Drive after robbing the store. Paramedics treated the clerk for exposure from the pepper spray, but he declined further medical attention.

The Roseville Police Department is asking for the public’s help identifying the man. Tipsters are asked to call (916) 783-7867.

Call The Bee’s Ellen Garrison at (916) 321-1006.
