MURPHYSBORO, IL (KFVS) -

Police in Murphysboro are looking for a man that robbed a convenience store early Tuesday morning.

According to Chief Chad Roberts, officers were called to Huck's Convenience Store on Walnut Street around 1:19 a.m.

The store clerk told officers that a black man wearing a gray hoodie with the hood covering his face and dark pants put up his hand with a paper bag covering it and demanded cash.

The clerk, believing the man had a gun, gave the suspect the cash in the register.
