ALICE (Kiii News) -

A store clerk in Alice was held up at knife point last week. The thief got away with cash, and Alice police are asking for your help in catching the robber.

It happened last Wednesday at the L-C Drive Thru Store on the 1100 block of North Johnson in Alice. Convenience store surveillance cameras captured images of the suspect.

Police said the suspect entered the store on at around 11:40 p.m. demanding money and holding a knife at the clerk. The thief managed to get away on foot with about $450.

The clerk called police, who then searched the area but had no luck finding the suspect.

"Officers searched the area, contacted people," said Michael Hinojosa of the Alice Police Department. "It was at night, pretty dark, and we pretty much exhausted the information provided for us."

The suspect is described as a Hispanic male standing around five-foot eight inches. He had his left forearm covered up, and police believe he was trying to conceal a tattoo or scar. He was also wearing a mask and gloves.

If you have any information regarding this crime, please contact Crime Stoppers of South Texas at 361-664-7867. Your tip could earn you a cash reward.
