Man robbed outside convenience store

An armed man robbed a patron early Tuesday morning at a convenience store on Whitesville Road.

The victim said he was walking back to his car after buying something at JR Food Mart, 1616 Whitesville Road, about 4:30 a.m. when a man approached him, showed him a gun and demanded money. The robber stole an undisclosed amount of cash and the victim ran back into the store, where he called police.

The victim described the robber as African-American, 6 feet tall with a medium build and appeared to be in his late 20s; he was wearing glasses, a black or grey T-shirt, green camouflage fatigue-style pants, black do-rag and black cap.
