YOU READ/SAW IT HERE FIRST: Cliffside Park police released a surveillance image of a gunman who held up a borough convenience store for $250 cash this morning.
The clerk at the Anderson Avenue mini mart told police that the thin, dark-skinned robber came in shortly after she opened around 7 a.m. and pointed a black handgun at her.
He then slammed it on the counter several times, demanding money in a clear voice without accent, she said.
She handed over the cash and he fled with it, Lt. Thomas Ingenito told CLIFFVIEW PILOT .
She wasn’t injured, he said.
Detectives are reviewing surveillance footage from the store.
They described the robber as about 6 feet tall, with dark eyes and wearing a light grey hooded sweatshirt, baggy sweat pants, a ski mask and light blue gloves.
