Police say a man robbed a 7-Eleven at gunpoint in Holtsville early Sunday morning.
They say the robber walked into the Waverly Avenue store at around 7:30 a.m., pointed a gun at the clerk and demanded he hand over money.

Authorities say the suspect is about 6 feet tall and between the ages of 25 and 30. He was wearing a tan coat and black pants.

The employees and the manager of the 7-Eleven declined to speak with on camera about the robbery, but said off camera that no one was hurt.
