PERRY -- A masked man robbed two clerks at gunpoint at Perry Food Mart/Pure Gas Station at 719 Carroll St. early Tuesday, police said.
The suspect was described as black male, standing 5 feet 10 inches to 6 feet tall, weighing about 180 to 200 pounds, wearing a long black shirt, blue jeans and white tennis shoes. He was believed to been driving a white Chevrolet Impala, said Perry police Capt. Heath Dykes.
At 6:53 a.m., police were dispatched to the food mart and gas station in reference to an armed robbery, Dykes said.
The suspect, wearing a blue bandana over his face and blue gloves, came in brandishing a handgun and ordered the two female clerks to the floor, Dykes said. The man then went behind the counter and stole and undetermined amount of cash from the cash register.
He then fled on foot to the parked car nearby, Dykes said. No one was hurt in the incident.
Anyone with information about the armed robbery is asked to call Perry police Lt. David Hill at 988-2826.
