DENISON, TX -- Police are searching for a man who robbed a convenience store in Denison Tuesday night around 7:30 p.m.

They say he walked into the Lucky Stop on 1417 and 691 in Denison, showed a gun and demanded money then ran off toward Perrin Estates.

Authorities describe the suspect as a young white man wearing all black, with a black bandana that covered his face.

He is said to be 5 foot 6 and weighs around 160 pounds.

No one was reported hurt.

Mike Eppler from Denison Police says this robbery may be similar to a robbery at the Longhorn Convenience store a few weeks ago, just a block away.

Eppler said, "Well that's something were certainly looking at, we're looking at every possibility but that's certainly something, the description is very very similar, and of course they're just around the corner from each other, so that's something were certainly looking into."
