A late-night armed robbery of a Southside convenience store has police searching for a suspect this morning. Savannah-Chatham police were called to the Parker's convenience store on Montgomery Cross Road about 11:15pm last night.

The clerk tells police a man walked into the store, pointed a gun at her head, and demanded she hand over the money from the cash register. She says the suspect was wearing dark clothing, had a black scarf over his nose and mouth, and was brandishing a silver handgun.

After getting the money, the suspect ran out of the store. There is a possibility he may have left some of his fingerprints on the glass door as he pushed on it to get out.

He was last seen running west on Montgomery Cross Road toward Atwood. Police searched the area, but came up empty.

Anyone with information about this latest armed robbery is asked to call CrimeStoppers at 234.2020.
