TEMPLE -

Temple police are searching for a suspect who robbed the Central Food Mart in Temple on Friday. The incident happened around 11 p.m. in the 2000 block of North 3rd Street.

The store owner and a clerk said the suspect came into the store carrying a long barreled pump action rifle. He pointed the gun at them and told them to get on the ground.

The suspect forced the store owner to open the safe and then assaulted the clerk. The store owner fired a shot at the suspect after he tripped when trying the leave, but missed.

No one was injured during the robbery. The suspect is described as a light skinned black male wearing a gray or white hooded sweatshirt, dark jeans, and a white cloth covering his lower face.

The suspect got away with cash from the safe and was seen fleeing north on foot. It is believed he was picked up by a dark colored pickup truck.

Anyone with information about this incident is asked to contact the Temple Police Department at 254-298-5500.
