Quincy Police ID Armed Robbery Suspect

By SCOTT JACKSON

Quincy police on Monday said the suspect who robbed a liquor store at knifepoint in April has fled the country.

Sgt. Karyn Barkas on Monday said the suspect has been identified as Elhalaby Souhail, age 23. Souhail’s last known residence was in Lynn, but Barkas said he had been staying with friends in Quincy. The suspect has since fled the country, she said.

“We believe he fled to Morocco,” Barkas said Monday.

Discount Liquors, located at 380 Granite St., was robbed shortly after 9:40 p.m. on April 30, police said. The suspect was wearing a black ski mask with gray stripes, according to police; he was holding a large knife and demanded an employee to “give me all the money.”

The suspect then exited the store, turned left and ran up Granite Street towards Centre Street, possibly onto Town Hill Street. The suspect made off with an undisclosed amount of cash. No injuries were reported.

Police on May 16 said they had identified the suspect but would not be releasing his name pending an arrest.
