About 1:30 Tuesday morning, officers from the Douglas Police Department responded to an armed robbery call at Aden's Minit Mart, 1020 East Baker Highway.

The clerk told officers that a black man went in to the store wearing a black hoodie-style jacket, blue jeans, and a black mask covering his face. 

The suspect had a black colored hand gun which he showed to a customer and motioned him to leave. He then pointed the gun at the clerk.

The clerk gave the robber cash from one of the store's cash registers. He shoved the money in his pocket and left towards Amberwood Apartments.  

Investigators are trying to identify the person in a surveillance photo of the robbery. They hope to talk to the witnesses at the scene including the man who left just before the robbery.

"We'll probably be speaking with him again. There was another customer that exited the store.You can see on the video and actually passed the offender outside the door," said Sergeant Robert Sprinkle of the Douglas Police Department. 

Anyone with information can call Douglas PD at 912-384-2222 or 912-260-3600.
