Lieutenant Chris Davis declined to immediately name the store this evening but said in a statement a man wearing a sky blue hooded jacket or sweatshirt came in the business, brandished a black handgun and demanded money from the cashier.
The man also wore a red mask, tan pants and white shoes.
The cashier gave the man an undisclosed amount of money and the suspect left the store.
It was not clear if the suspect, who fled on foot, used a vehicle at any point following the robbery. His direction of travel was not immediately known.
Anyone with information is encouraged to call Weldon police at 252-536-3136 or Crimestoppers at 252-583-4444.
