WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- New Hanover County Sheriff's deputies are searching for a man who tried to rob the Pit Stop convenience store at 4902 Carolina Beach Rd.

Investigators say just before midnight a white male 20-30 years old with light facial hair, wearing blue jeans, black hoodie, dark tennis shoes, dark gloves and carrying a black backpack entered the store and pointed a shotgun at the clerk. The man demanded money from the register, which was empty due to the store closing for the night. He then demanded the clerk open the safe. The employee could not open the safe, so the robber walked out.

Anyone with information on the robbery should contact the New Hanover County Sheriff's Office at (910) 798-4162.
