An armed robber is on the run after holding up a convenience store Tuesday night.
Rocky Mount police say it occurred at the Trade Wilco Hess at 3550 Sunset Avenue around 10:30 p.m.
The clerk told police a man came into the store, showed her a black handgun that was in his waist band and demanded money. The woman gave him the cash in the drawer and the robber ran away in an unknown direction.
Police say a K-9 unit was brought to the scene but they were unable to locate any suspects.
