The clerk complied with the suspect’s demands and turned over an undisclosed amount of money. The suspect then fled from the store in a northerly direction. There were no injuries.

The suspect was described as white male, 5’05”-5’10” tall wearing a dark colored shirt, blue jeans, gloves, and glasses.
