Ferry-Fillmore District police said a convenience store at 155 Jefferson Ave. was robbed by a gunman between 8:20 and 8:40 a.m. today.

The clerk told police that the robber provided a bookbag and ordered him to open the cash register and place cash and coins into the bag. He also forced the clerk to place some cigarettes into the bag.

While the robbery was going on, the gunman kept pushing his pistol against various parts of the clerk’s body, including his head, police said. He also stole the clerk’s cellphone before leaving.
