(KMOV) -- Investigators in the Metro-East are looking for a man accused of robbing a local store.
The robbery happened around 9:25 a.m. on Sunday at the Farm Fresh Store on East Airline Drive in East Alton, Illinois.
Two store clerks told the Madison County sheriff’s deputies that a white man walked into the store and demanded money from them.
The suspect reportedly said that he didn’t have a gun, but that, “four black guys” were outside the store with guns.
The clerks gave the suspect a small amount of cash and he left the store.
Authorities are hoping that store surveillance video will help catch the suspect.
The suspect is described as a white man wearing a dark T-shirt over his face, dark sunglasses over the T-shirt, a gray hoodie under a dark jacket and dark pants.
Anyone with information in this case is asked to contact the Madison County sheriff’s office at 618-693-4433.
