Akron robbery suspect identified but remains on lam

Beacon Journal staff report

Akron police, with the help of tips from the public, have identified a suspect wanted for mugging a man at gunpoint last month.

Marcus Blue, 37, is wanted on aggravated robbery charges.

Police say Blue is one of the two suspects depicted in a surveillance video taken Jan. 31 shortly after a man was robbed at gunpoint on LaFollette Street.

Last week, police released the video to the media, and the public responded with Blue’s name, police Capt. Daniel Zampelli said Thursday.

The second suspect has not been identified.

Police say they obtained the video from outside the Circle K gas station at 940 S. Arlington St., where the suspects used a credit card belonging to the victim.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Akron police at 330-375-2490.

Information may also be provided anonymously by calling Summit County Crimestoppers at 330-434-COPS(2677) or by texting TIPSCO plus the tip to 274637. Tipsters may qualify for a cash reward.
