Police Seek Man Who Robbed 7-11

A robber hit a West Redding convenience store Friday morning. At around 6:09AM, a white man wearing a black ski mask and gloves walked into the 7-Eleven on Eureka Way, told the clerk he had a gun and demanded cash. When the clerk, 68-year-old Emily Ellis, questioned whether the man was armed he momentarily raised his shirt to show his waistband but the clerk still saw no weapon. As she reached to push the robbery alarm the man jumped over the counter and grabbed the metal cash box from the register, which he left with.  The robber was last seen running down the alley next to the store. He's about 5-Foot-7 and 160 pounds and had a white and red graphic design on his black sweatshirt.
