Fort Worth convenience store robbed at gunpoint

Police are looking for a man who wore a black cowboy hat when he robbed a Fort Worth convenience store Saturday night.

The man, who also wore a black jacket and had a beard and mustache, walked into the Jeff Stop at 3800 N. Main St. and asked the 63-year-old clerk for cigars, then pulled a gun when the clerk opened the register, according to Lt. Paul Henderson, a police spokesman.

The man shoved the gun toward the clerk's face and said, "Don't move or I will shoot," a news release said. The gunman then grabbed the register's change drawer and flung it, scattering coins.

"He grabbed a stack of cash and swaggered out of the store, leaving the clerk and coins both spinning from the incident," Henderson said in the release. The clerk wasn't injured. The man is described as 5 feet, 7 inches to 5 feet, 9 inches tall, 140 to 160 pounds and in his 30s, Henderson said.

Surveillance images weren't available.

Anyone with information can call robbery detectives at 817-392-4370 or Crime Stoppers at 800-469-TIPS. Calls are confidential; information leading to an arrest could result in a reward.
