Police are searching for the man who walked into the 7-Eleven at Pikes Peak Avenue and Academy Blvd. and robbed the store at about 1:15 a.m. Sunday morning.

The clerk told police the man had the hood of a sweatshirt pulled around his face and he reached into the pocket of the hoodie as though he had a weapon. He ran off with an undetermined amount of cash. 

A K9 was used and they attempted to track the suspect, but he was not located. The suspect is described as a black male, approximately 20-years of age, 5’8, with a thin build.
