Rome Police are investigating an early Wednesday morning armed robbery of a local convenience store.

Officers were dispatched to the BP gas station on Highway 411 just after 5 a.m. Wednesday to the report of a robbery with a knife that had occurred moments earlier.

The female clerk in the store told police that a male subject wearing all black clothing and a black mask approached the counter, brandished a large knife and demanded money. After she emptied the cash drawer, the subject forced her to lay face down on the floor as he left.

Investigators have reviewed surveillance footage from the store and are asking for the public’s help. Anyone with information on the robbery is asked to contact Detective Joe Costolnick at 706-238-5128.
