STROUD TWP - Stroud Area Regional Police is asking for the public’s assistance in identifying a robbery suspect.

On Monday, March 20th, at approximately 8:00pm police responded to the Stroud Mall for a robbery/ assault call.  

At approximately 6:30pm the victim, a 20-year-old man, was walking in the lower parking deck of the mall when he was approached by two black males, assaulted and forced into his own vehicle at gun point.
