CANTON, NC (FOX Carolina) -

The Haywood County Sheriff’s Office is asking for the public's help to locate an armed robbery suspect.

Officers were dispatched to Galloway’s convenience store on Pisgah Drive around 10 p.m. Tuesday after a man robbed the store at gunpoint, deputies say.

The suspect brandished a large handgun and demanded money, then ran out of the store and headed on foot toward Canton, deputies say.

The man is described as 5 feet 5 inches tall, weighing about 160 pounds, wearing a dark hoodie, dark pants, and a dark scarf across the lower part of his face. 

Anyone with information regarding the suspects’ identity or whereabouts is cautioned not to approach them, but instead call 911 or the Haywood County Sheriff’s Office at 828-452-6666.
