State police are seeking the public's help to find an armed robbery suspect.

Troopers said he struck the Jo Jo's Food Mart-Valero on Route 1 in Westbrook on Tuesday just after 11:30 p.m.

The suspect entered the store carrying a black handgun with a silver-colored barrel and demanded money from the clerk.

He took the cash and fled on foot, troopers said.

The gun was never fired and no one was hurt.
