Police: Armed robber takes cash from Norfolk 7-Eleven


NORFOLK, Va. (WAVY) — Norfolk police say they are investigating after an armed suspect robbed a 7-Eleven Tuesday morning.

Police say the robbery happened on Colley Avenue, near 38th Street.

An employee told police a man walked into the store, pulled out a gun and demanded money. This suspect fled the scene with cash before police arrived.

No injuries were reported, according to police.

This same 7-Eleven was the scene of a robbery last December and a shooting in September. A 17-year-old was accused of shooting a store clerk in the September incident, during an attempted robbery.
