The suspect had his head and the lower portion of his face covered with a black mask or similar type clothing.

Look at the video at:05 and you can see his outstretched arm revealing his uncovered skin color at his wrist. It's best to freeze frame it at :05 and even enlarge the frozen frame to full screen.

Best to quickly start and stop the video at full screen view several times between :05 to :06 to get a clearer picture. That being said, it doesn't matter what color/race a robber is........Hopefully he will be caught and brought to justice through a fair and impartial trial.
