AMSTERDAM - A convenience store on Guy Park Avenue was robbed Saturday, city police said, and the suspect made off with an undetermined amount of money.

Police said officers received a report of a robbery at Kings Food and Fuel on 72 Guy Park Ave. around 8:30 p.m.

The employee working told officers a man entered the store and demanded money, implying he had a weapon. The suspect then reached into the register and removed an undetermined amount of cash before fleeing on foot. He was last seen in the area of Wall Street and Guy Park Avenue.

Det. Lt. Kurt Conroy said the suspect did not brandish any weapons during the crime. Conroy said police do not know if he is linked to any previous robberies.

The suspect is described as a white man, between 5 feet 9 inches and 5 feet 11 inches tall, with a medium build, was clean shaven and had a tattoo on his left forearm/wrist area.

Police said the suspect was wearing a black and gray hooded sweatshirt with what appears to be a picture of the New York City skyline on the front with the words "New York" in red lettering.

Police ask anyone with information to call the department at 842-1100 and ask to speak with a detective.

The manager at the Kings Food and Fuel on Guy Park Avenue did not wish to comment on the case this morning.
