Modesto police are looking for a man who robbed a Central Modesto market at gunpoint Monday night.
The suspect walked into Gill's Food Mart on Lucern Avenue about 8:25 p.m., pulled out a revolver and demanded money from the clerk, according to officer Scott Nelson of the Modesto Police Department. The suspect then fired a shot into a display case. The clerk gave him an undisclosed amount of money, and the suspect took off on foot, Nelson said.
The man was described as 6 feet tall and wearing a black hooded sweat shirt and a blue bandana around his face. No further description was available, Nelson said.
