Armed Robber at Belmont Doughnut Shop Caught on Video

Police in Belmont released security camera video of an armed robbery at a doughnut shop early Monday morning.

At about 4:40 a.m., a man armed with a handgun walked into Chuck's Donuts in the 600 block of Ralston Avenue and demanded money from the cash register, police said. The video shows him wearing a mask over his face and pointing a gun at a clerk as she empties the cash register.

The suspect is described as a male, about 6 feet tall, with a husky build and a medium complexion, wearing a white "Star Wars" character mask.
