Police are looking for a suspect who robbed a North Knoxville convenience store Saturday night shortly before 9:15.

Witnesses said a man walked into the Indu Sai Convenience Store on Whittle Springs Road and demanded money from the clerk. The clerk then pushed the suspect, which started a struggle.

The clerk was able to pull off the suspect's toboggan and bandana before the suspect fled the store and ran north on Whittle Springs.

Knoxville Police were able to get detailed surveillance footage of the robbery.

Authorities said the man is 25-30 years old, about 6 feet tall and weighs around 170 pounds. He also has long hair. At the time of the robbery he was wearing blue medical gloves, an orange toboggan and a red bandana over his face.
