SPRAGUE, CT (WFSB) - State police are looking for a person who robbed a convenience store in Sprague on Tuesday.

Troopers said it happened at the Cumberland farms on Main Street in the Baltic section of town around 8:30 p.m.

The clerk reported that the person entered the store, approached him with a folding knife and demanded that the register drawer be opened.

The suspect walked around the counter and took money and cigarettes.
