Police are looking for a man who robbed a northeast Roanoke convenience store.
Roanoke police spokeswoman Aisha Johnson said officers were called to the Snappy Food Mart in the 600 block of Liberty Road at 9:38 p.m. Thursday.
An employee told officers that a man had entered the store and threatened him with a baseball bat.
Johnson said the employee handed over an undisclosed amount of money and the man fled.
She said the suspect is described as a white male, about 22 years old, who was 5 feet 7 inches tall. He was wearing a long-sleeved black shirt with a hood, faded black jeans and gloves. He covered his face with a black-and-white bandanna.
The suspect left in a dark-colored car with another white man, Johnson said. The vehicle was spotted on Plantation Road headed toward Orange Avenue.
No arrests have been made.
Johnson said no one was hurt in the incident.
