Convenient Food Mart held up by man with gun

ELYRIA TWP. — The Convenient Food Mart on North Ridge Road was held up by a man with a gun Saturday afternoon, according to the Lorain County Sheriff’s Office.

According to Sgt. Don Barker, a man in a hooded sweatshirt and a ski mask entered the store, at 42163 North Ridge Road, about 2:20 p.m.

The man had a black and gray handgun in his pants but apparently did not display it, he said.

The man, who is described as Hispanic, apparently went behind the counter and took about $200 cash from the cash register, Barker said.

The man’s hooded sweatshirt was found on the ground nearby. His ski mask was described as black and blue.

Barker said no one was hurt in the incident. He said no one has been arrested, and deputies don’t have any suspects to his knowledge.
