Southwest Florida Crime Stoppers are looking for a man who tried to rob a North Fort Myers convenience store Tuesday night.

At 10:20 p.m. on July 17, the suspect entered a Circle K at 789 Pondella Road. He approached the clerk and brandished a knife saying, “dollar, dollar,” according to Crime Stoppers.

He left the store empty-handed, fleeing on foot and Crime Stoppers say he may have gotten in a white vehicle that was waiting nearby.

The armed suspect is a man who is between 5’8″ and 5’10”, 180 pounds and was wearing a blue long-sleeved hooded sweater with a lime green shirt over the hoodie. The suspect used black material to cover his face and gloves at the time of the incident.
