The Watauga County Sheriff's Office is seeking a suspect in an armed robbery from about 9:40 last night. The victim was approached near Bamboo Road by a black man, about 5 feet 6 inches tall and weighing roughly 160 pounds, the man threatening the victim with a what appeared to be a handgun, then fleeing the scene in a silver SUV.  The man was described as having dark hair pulled into a ponytail, traveling with a white woman who appeared to be pregnant. The two fled toward the south end of Boone, but in spite of Boone Police stopping at least one similar vehicle, no arrests have come.  Anyone with information about the crime or the suspects is urged to call the Watauga County Sheriff's Office at (828)264-3761 or Crimestoppers at (828)268-6959.
