The clerk says a man came up to the counter to buy a piece of candy. He handed her a $1 bill then pulled a knife from his pocket and told her to give him all of the money.
The man reached over the counter and grabbed money from the open register and fled the store on foot south bound on Bristol Pike towards Woodhaven Road with an undetermined amount of cash.
The suspect is described as a white male, 5'8" to 6' tall, approximately 220 pounds, wearing a black hooded sweatshirt with a black knit cap underneath the hood, gray sweatpants and light colored sneakers.
