JAMES CITY - Craven county deputies are looking for a man they say robbed a convenience store, and then stripped his clothes in some woods after he ran from the scene.
The robbery happened Friday night around 10:00 at the Express It gas station in James City. A white male entered the business wearing a mask. Deputies said the man demanded $60 from the cashier. A weapon was not visible, but deputies think the man may have implied he had one.
After getting the money, the suspect then fled on foot. A deputy chased after him, but lost him in a wooded area near Old Cherry Point Road. His clothes were recovered there.
No one was hurt in the robbery.
Anyone with information is asked to contact the Craven County Sheriff's Office.
