POLICE -- Police need your help finding an armed robber.

Police say the suspect walked into the 7-Eleven at 496 N. University Ave. in Provo at about 2 in a.m. last Thursday.

Because of the time of night, the clerk refused to sell him beer. The suspect then spent several minutes arguing with the clerk.

The suspect then brought a case of Pepsi to the counter, but instead of paying for it, he pulled a gun and pointed it at the clerk's head. The clerk says the gun had a red tip, leading him to believe it wasn't real.

After a brief struggle over the gun, the suspect ran off.

The suspect is described as a white adult male, approximately 5-foot-8, 150 pounds. He had brown hair with bleached tips and was wearing a black tank top, jeans and white tennis shoes.

Anyone with information about this incident should call Provo Police Dispatch at 801-852-6210.
