ANSONIA, CT (WFSB) -

Officers in Ansonia said a convenience store was robbed a gunpoint Thursday night.

They said the suspect went into the XpressMart on Wakelee Avenue shortly after 10:30 p.m.

The clerk reported that a clean shaven man with dark curly and dark clothing robbed the store. The suspect was about 5'6" tall.

The robber fled the store with about $200 in cash and a number of cigarette packs.

He was last seen heading east on Church Street.

Police said no photos or video were available as of Friday.

No one was hurt.

Investigators said they were looking into whether a robbery at the Shell gas station on Main Street on March 22 is related to Thursday's crime. The suspect descriptions in both cases were similar.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Ansonia Police Department at 203-735-1885.
