Shreveport Police say a man who robbed at gunpoint a Circle K convenience store could be easily spotted because of his Mohawk-style hairdo.

The robbery happened just after midnight Monday at the store in the 8500 block of Youree Drive.

Police were told that as the armed gunman entered the store, he demanded that the clerk come to the front of the store. After forcing the clerk to the front of the store, the man walked behind the counter and demanded the clerk to open the register.

The man made off with an undisclosed amount of cash and was last seen running behind the store.

Police describe the man as standing about 5-9 to 5-11 and having a stocky build. He was wearing a white T-shirt over his face, dark jeans, brown boots -- and Mohawk hairdo. He was armed with a black semi-automatic handgun.

Police ask that anyone with information about the robbery to contact Caddo Crime Stoppers at 673-7373.
