A 24-year-old cashier at a Stenton Avenue 7-Eleven location was robbed at gunpoint early Thursday morning.

According to police, the unknown robber entered the store located at 1830 Stenton Ave. at 3:25 a.m., showed the cashier a handgun in his waistband, reached for it and said, “Give me the money, old head.”

The robber then grabbed $30 in cash out of the register and ran off. No injuries were reported.

The unknown suspect is described as a 5-foot 11-inch tall black man in his 20s with a medium build. He was wearing black jeans at the time.

The robbery comes three months after a pair of men used a sawed-off shotgun to rob the same convenience store of $50.
