    Bristol police are investigating a robbery at a donut shop after a man wearing surgical gloves and a mask stole cash on Sunday night.

    Police said the man walked into the Whole Donut, at 2 Burlington Ave. in Bristol at 8:14 p.m. on Sunday and told the female cashier, ”I’m going to rob you!”
