A man armed with a knife robbed a Spokane convenience store early Saturday.
The clerk told police the man walked into the Qwik Stop, 1001 E. Wellesley, about 3:50 a.m. He picked up a package of donuts, waited for another customer to leave, pulled out a knife and demanded money.
The clerk backed away and the man threatened to cut him, saying he needed money for food, police said.
After taking money, the man fled the store on foot and ran through an alley.
A police dog tracked the man’s scent into the alley and found a dark green sport jacket the man had worn during the robbery.
The man was described as black, between 25 and 35, about 6-feet tall and 180 pounds. He was wearing a light colored shirt, dark pants and sunglasses.
