Man armed with knife robs clerk at 7-Eleven

A robber wielding a knife took an undisclosed amount of cash and cigarettes during a holdup at a 7-Eleven store in Jamestown this morning.

The man walked into the store at Sixth and Main streets at about 5:40 a.m. and robbed the clerk at knifepoint, before fleeing on foot, police said.

He was described as a white male, about 5 foot 9, with a medium build, wearing tan Carhart overalls and a light gray hooded sweatshirt, with his face hidden by an orange bandanna. He also apparently wore blue latex gloves.

Anyone who may know the man’s identity or has information about the robbery is asked to call Jamestown police at 483-7531 or leave an anonymous tip at 483-8477 (TIPS).
