Las Vegas officers want help identifying a man they said robbed a central valley convenience store Oct. 1.

The robbery happened about 2:30 a.m. at the store near Flamingo Road and Valley View Boulevard, according to a Metro release. Police said a man picked out a bag of chips and a drink, and then walked to the counter. The man pulled out a large revolver from his waistband after the clerk opened the register. He pointed the gun at the clerk and demanded money.

Police said the clerk gave the robber a small amount of money, and he left with the money, chips and the drink.

Officers said the robber was last seen wearing a blue, striped hoodie and blue jeans.
