Longview Man Robbed by Armed Bandit

A scary moment for a Longview man today as he is robbed at gunpoint in a convenience store parking lot.

Police say it was around 12:30 today that a 61 year old man was about to get into his car in the parking lot off of North Eastman road, when an armed man came form behind him.

The robber put a gun to the victims back and demanded money. The victim gave the suspect all his credit cards, but no cash and the suspect fled on foot.

The only description police have of the suspect is a light skinned African American male.
