Police search for McHenry robber

Police on Wednesday were looking for a man who robbed the Hy-Step Corner shoe store on McHenry Avenue in Modesto on Tuesday afternoon.

Shortly after 5 p.m., Modesto police officers were called to the store at 2801 McHenry Ave., minutes after a man entered the store with a handgun and demanded money from an employee, said Sgt. Rick Armendariz, a Modesto police spokesman.

The man ran south toward Leveland Lane.

There were at least two employees and one customer in the store, but nobody was injured, Armendariz said.

The suspect was described as white, in his 30s, wearing blue jeans, a brown jacket and a black cap.

He was about 5 feet 10 inches tall and weighed about 160 pounds, Armendariz said.
