Sketch Released of Masked Robber

JANUARY 17, 2006 -- Investigators now have a description of the man they believe held up two businesses in the Wilmington area while wearing a skeleton mask.

Authorities have released a drawing based on eyewitness accounts. They say the masked man is white, in his late teens or early twenties. He's around 5' 7 and weighs between 145 and 160 pounds, with short curly black hair.

Investigators say the man robbed a Wendy's on the corner of Market Street and Porters Neck Road Sunday night. They believe the same man is responsible for holding up a Kangaroo gas station on Castle Hayne Road Monday morning.
