ATWATER -- No one was hurt early Tuesday morning during an armed robbery at the Circle K convenience store, police reported.
The robbery was reported at 12:48 a.m. at the 1021 Shaffer Road store. The clerk told police he'd been stocking items when he heard someone enter the store. The clerk said he thought it was a customer and turned around, but then heard the sound of the robber racking a gun.
The robber, who was wearing a black bandanna over his face, pointed a black semi-automatic gun at the clerk, demanding money, police said. The clerk complied with the robber's demands, opening the cash register, and the robber pointed his gun at the clerk the entire time, according to police.
