An armed robbery was reported early this morning at an Albany convenience store.

The cashier stated that the gunman then entered the business through the window. The amount of money taken has not be determined, APD officials said.

The bandit was described as a 5-foot, 8-inch black male about 17 years old with a light complexion. He was wearing blue jeans pants, white t-shirt, and a blue jacket.
