Police in Guilford are searching for an attempted armed robbery suspect who struck a convenience store overnight.
They said it happened at the Xtra Mart on the Boston Post Road just before 1:30 a.m. on Tuesday.
A 911 caller reported that a man entered the store, showed a black semi-automatic handgun and demanded the opening of a safe.

He was also wearing a large gold ring on his left ring finger.
The vehicle was determined to be a newer model gray or green Nissan Altima.
