A knife-wielding man robbed a convenience store in Augusta Square Shopping Center late Sunday, police said.
The man walked into the 7-Eleven at 699 E. Chestnut Hill Road just before 9 p.m., said Sgt. Richard Bratz, a spokesman for Delaware State Police.
The man confronted a clerk and demanded money, Bratz said. The clerk gave the robber an undisclosed amount of cash, and the robber left. No one was injured.
