Police in Milwaukie are on the lookout for an armed robbery suspect who targeted a local convenience store. 

Officers responded to the 7-Eleven on SE Lake Road just after 1:30 Tuesday morning.  An employee says the suspect pulled out a handgun and demanded money.  He reportedly left without taking anything from the register, but did take a customer's purse.

No one was injured in the robbery, but the suspect is still on the loose.

Sheriff's deputies from Clackamas County searched the area, but did not locate the suspect.  A handgun believed to be the one used was recovered nearby.

The suspect is described as a Hispanic male 25-30 years of age about 5'9" with a medium build.

He was described to be wearing a black hooded sweatshirt and a black facemask with black jeans.  

Anyone with information concerning this crime is encouraged to contact the Clackamas County Sheriff's Office's confidential Tip Line at 503-723-4949.
