AUGUSTA, Maine — A city convenience store was held up at gunpoint Tuesday night, according to Augusta police Lt. Christopher Massey.

The robbery occurred shortly before 8 p.m. at the C and S Market on Riverside Drive, Massey said.

The suspect, a white man, entered the store with a bandana over his face, brandished his weapon and demanded cash, Massey said.

The weapon appeared to be a shotgun or rifle, and the man was given all the money in the cash register.

No injuries were reported, and the robber fled in a dark colored sedan on Route 201 towards Waterville.

The suspect stands 5 feet 9 inches tall and has a slim build. Anyone with information is urged to call Augusta police at 626-2370 and ask for Detective Nathan Walker or Detective Chris Blodgett.
