An armed man robbed a Nampa convenience store early Tuesday morning, making off with an undisclosed amount of cash, according to police. No one was injured.

The robbery occurred at about 5:23 a.m. at a store in the 200 block of 22nd Ave. South.

A man who covered his face with a white bandana and black stocking hat entered the store, brandished a folding knife and stun gun and demanded cash from the clerk. He then apologized to the clerk, took the money and fled the store on foot, according to Nampa Police Sgt. Tim Randall. It's unknown which direction he fled.

The suspect was described as skinny, light-skinned and about 5-foot-6-inches tall. He wore a gray hoodie, blue jeans and gray-and-white tennis shoes.

Police expect to obtain security camera footage by next week; the New Year's holiday is holding things up.

Anyone with information about the robbery is asked to call Nampa Police 465-2257, or CrimeStoppers, 343-2577.
