    A man held up a woman working at an area convenience store last week.

    The armed man walked into the Shore Stop at 1612 DuPont Highway in Dover, Del., pulled a handgun out of his waistband, pointed it at the 30-year-old woman behind the counter and demanded money, according to Delaware State Police.

    The employee handed over an undisclosed amount of cash from the register before the man ran out of the store toward the Rodney Village neighborhood, according to police.

    The employee wasn’t hurt.

    Investigators described the suspect as standing about 5-foot-9 to 6-foot tall, around 145 to 160 pounds who was wearing a black-hooded jacket with white draw strings, blue jeans, black sneakers and a baseball cap.

    Anyone with information is asked to contact state police Major Crimes Unit at Troop 3 at 302-697-2104, submit a tip online or anonymously text to 274637 using the keyword “DSP.”
