Charlottesville Police are investigating an armed robbery at the Joy Imperial Food Store in the 1300 block of East High Street. The call came in around 10:15 p.m. Police say a white male with a green thermal shirt wrapped around his face entered the store, pointed a knife at the clerk and demanded money from the register. The clerk complied.
The man then fled the scene heading up East High Street towards the downtown area. He made off with an undisclosed amount of money. The clerk was uninjured in the incident.
Police hope security cameras inside the store help with this investigation.
