Hollywood police detectives are looking for a man they say pulled a gun on a clerk at a convenience store, demanded money from the register and then took off with the loot.
The armed robbery happened just before 1 a.m. Tuesday at Circle K, 890 North Federal Hwy.
Police say Dieudonne Joseph was behind the counter when an unknown man, believed to be between 18 and 25-years-old, asked for a lottery ticket.
When Joseph asked for the man’s identification, the man pulled a handgun from his pants and pointed it at the clerk, according to police.
Surveillance video clearly shows the man, who was wearing a blue hat, black t-shirt with khaki sleeves, khaki pants and black shoes, holding the gun and giving the clerk a brown paper back.
The man headed north when he left the store.
