According to officers, a clerk was inside stocking shelves when a man wearing a ski mask and sunglasses came into the store. When the clerk returned to the counter, the man showed an 8-inch knife and demanded cash.

The clerk cooperated and gave the man some cash, police said. The suspect then ran out of the store.
