SOUTH PORTLAND — Police are asking the public’s help in identifying a man who allegedly robbed a convenience store at gunpoint Nov. 5.

According to a news release from Police Sgt. Christopher Todd, the man entered the Circle K convenience store at  690 Main St. at 10:18 p.m. wearing a black-hooded sweatshirt and black pants. His face was covered with a white mask, with eye holes cut out.

The man displayed a black, semi-automatic-style handgun to a clerk, Todd said, and demanded all of the cash in the drawer. The clerk did as he was told, and the robber fled with a small amount of cash.
