Phoenix police are searching for a suspect who robbed a convenience store at gunpoint, stealing cash from the register and a gallon of milk.

According to Sgt. Jamie Rothschild with Phoenix PD, the suspect entered the Kwik Corner store near Seventh and Roosevelt streets on Feb. 3 at about 1:30 a.m.

Police say the suspect had a sawed-off shotgun type weapon under his jacket for several minutes before the robbery. The suspect approached the clerk and put a gallon of milk on the counter.
