PD: Man grabbed milk, kids drinks just before armed robbery

Anyone who knows 23-year-old Blake Newton's whereabouts is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 720-913-STOP.

KUSA - The Denver Police Department released a photo of a man who they say robbed a gas station at gunpoint last week and who was also the subject of a manhunt on Monday. 

Blake Newton, 23, is accused of going to the Bradley Sinclair at 2101 S. Holly St. during the early morning hours of Nov. 8 and grabbing a gallon of milk and two kids drinks before going to the counter and demanding that the cashier give him all of the money from the safe and cash register, according to a report from Denver Police. 

Newton threatened the cashier with a black and silver pistol, and ordered him to lay on the floor while he escaped, according to DPD. 

Newton is also wanted in a case linked to a manhunt that occurred on Monday, prompting Denver Police to establish a secure perimeter near West 41st Avenue and Wolff Street. He was ultimately never located. 

Anonymous tips can be submitted by calling Metro Denver Crime Stoppers at 720-913-STOP (7867) or by using the Metro Denver Crime Stoppers mobile app. All tipsters remain anonymous and are eligible for an award of up to $2,000.
