Convenience store near airport robbed again

A man armed with a knife robbed a Mapco market on Donelson Pike, police said Monday morning. Metro police Capt. Randy Hickerson said that at about 3:45 a.m. today, a man armed with a knife entered the store at 465 Donelson Pike and demanded money from the clerk. The clerk gave him money from the register, and the robber then fled on foot. It was the second robbery at this location in less than a week. Police reported a robbery last Thursday morning at the same Mapco market. The suspect in today's robbery is described as a white man in his early 20s, 6 feet tall, and wearing camouflage shorts and a black tank top and a white bandanna over his face. No one was injured in the incident, which occurred in the Hermitage Precinct.
