AMARILLO -- On March 24, Amarillo Police were called out at about 10:15 p.m.  to the Mini Food Mart at 2813 Amarillo Blvd East on a robbery. 

The suspect entered through the front door and demanded money from the clerk.

The clerk went behind the register and hid in a back room, and did not give the suspect any money.  

The suspect left the scene, and surveillance cameras show the suspect running northbound on N. Manhattan.
