The robbery happened around 2 p.m. at Richdale Food Shops, located at 185 Lincoln St., according to a statement from Hingham police. Surveillance footage shows the moment a man approached two employees at the checkout counter.

“The suspect entered the store and brandished a semi-automatic pistol at the clerk, demanding money,” the statement said.

The man fled with about $700 cash, according to Mass Most Wanted.

“He then left the store and went into the Crow Point neighborhood...,” officials wrote on Mass Most Wanted.


The suspect was described as a white male with a beard, about six feet tall, the statement said. The man was wearing a New York Yankees hat, black jacket with a yellow zipper, black sweatpants, and a surgery mask at the time of the robbery, police said.
