GUILFORD, CT (WFSB) -

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.

However, the suspect's demand was not met and he fled the store in a car, according to police.

The suspect was described as a man in his late 20s who stood about 5'9" tall and weighed 150 to 170 pounds. He wore a dark hooded jacket and a ski mask.

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.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Guilford Police Department at 203-453-8061.
