The second suspect is described as a dark-skinned black male, about 5’10″, and a thin build. He was last seen wearing a dark hoodie and baggy jeans.

Costa’s Cash Express is located at the corner of Union and Pleasant Streets, just doors down from the downtown New Bedford Police Station.The clerk suffered a cut to her lip.

Anyone with information is asked to call New Bedford Detectives at 508-991-6300 ext 320.
