Convenience Market Robbed

Cookeville police are investigating the armed robbery of a local convenience store early Tuesday morning. Authorities say the incident occurred about 2 am when a man walked into the Burgess Falls Shell Market on S. Willow Ave., threatened the clerk with a knife and demanded money. He reportedly jumped up on the counter, grabbed money out of the cash drawer and then threw that container onto the floor. The suspect was described only as a white male, who was wearing a hooded gray coat with the hood tied closely around his face at the time of the robbery. Anyone with information is asked to call Crimestoppers at 520-7867.
