“We got the call about 6:30 p.m. that an individual had entered the location on South Conecuh Street and demanded money using a handgun,” Lovvorn said. “He was in and out and left on foot.”

The suspect, described as a male, was wearing a green hooded windbreaker, a black stocking cap, white athletic shoes, and black pants. Additionally, he had Band-Aids on each cheek, potentially concealing facial tattoos or scarring.

“We’re thinking this is either a light-skinned black male or a white male. We got some physical evidence at the scene and we’re waiting on forensics,” Lovvorn said.
