Sag Harbor Village police now say that a third person was likely working in tandem with the man and woman who robbed Corner Closet last month, and they have released a sketch of the suspect in hopes the public can identify him.
During the November 15 robbery at the Main Street consignment shop, the robbers displayed a handgun and tied the store owner in a back room before taking designer handbags, scarves and other accessories, according to police.
The robbery occurred at 5:50 p.m., and police now say that at 5:30 p.m. the third man had entered a Main Street jewelry store, Illusions, and said things that were identical to what was said to the Corner Closet owner, police said.
The man is described as Hispanic, 25 to 35 years old, and between 5-foot-5 and 5-foot-9 with medium build, short black hair and a thin mustache.
Of the two who conducted the robbery personally, police said the man is described as Hispanic, about 5 feet 3 inches tall with brown hair and in his late 20s or early 30s. He was wearing a black sweatshirt and jeans at the time.
The woman was described as Hispanic, about 5 feet 5 inches tall with brown hair, also in her late 20s or early 30s. She was dressed in a fuchsia sweater vest over a black hoodie, police said.
According to Sag Harbor Village police and Suffolk County Crime Stoppers, the robbers fled in a late 1990s or early 2000s four-door domestic sedan.
