The Statesboro Police Department is seeking information about an armed robbery at a local convenience store.

Around 6:30 a.m. Saturday, Statesboro police officers responded to Enmark at the intersection of North Main Street and Northside Drive, said Maj. Rob Bryan, interim police chief.

"It was reported that an unknown black male entered the business and demanded money from the two clerks," he said. "The suspect indicated that he had a weapon, but no weapon was observed by the clerks. The suspect obtained an undisclosed amount of currency from the register and fled the scene on foot."

The suspect was described as a black male, approximately 6 feet tall and 180 pounds, wearing a dark-colored jacket and a blue toboggan cap.

"There were no injuries reported in this incident, and the investigation is continuing," Bryan said. "The case has been turned over to the Criminal Investigations Bureau and assigned to Detective Travis Kreun."

Anyone with information concerning this case is asked to contact the Statesboro Police Department at (912) 764-9911.
