The Roanoke Rapids Police Department is investigating the armed robbery of an East Tenth Street convenience store Tuesday night.


Police declined to specifically name the store.

The person is described as standing between 5-feet, 8-inches to 5-feet, 10-inches tall and weighing between 150 to 170 pounds.
