Waco police are investigating an aggravated robbery of the 7-Eleven convenience store at 701 S. University Parks Drive early Saturday morning.
Officers responded to a report of a man entering the store at 2:15 a.m. wearing a ski mask, Sgt. W. Patrick Swanton wrote in a press release.
The man reportedly approached the counter, where a customer was standing, and ordered the clerk to hand over the money in the register, Swanton said.
“The suspect kept grabbing at his waist as if he had a gun but did not display one,” Swanton said. “After he had the cash, the suspect then ordered the clerk to give him a pack of Newport cigarettes.”
The man was last seen fleeing on foot southbound behind the store.
No injuries were reported, and no arrest had been made by Saturday evening.
