SAN ANTONIO – San Antonio police need the public’s help identifying a man they say robbed a South Side convenience store at gunpoint on Friday.

The robbery happened at 11:30 p.m. at Primo’s Food Mart #2, located in the 2200 block of S. Flores Drive.

Police say a man walked into the convenience store holding a handgun and told a female store clerk to lay on the ground and start crawling behind the counter. The man then followed a male store clerk behind the counter.
