At about 2:31 pm Monday afternoon, the Turlock Police Department was dispatched to a reported armed robbery that had just occurred at Speedway Express, 1250 East Avenue, Turlock.
When officers arrived on scene, they spoke with the clerk who told them that a male subject approached him at the register, pulled out a small black handgun, and ordered that he give him money. The clerk complied and then the subject ran away.
The subject ran westbound through the alley just west of the business, where the clerk lost sight of him. Officers checked the area but were unable to locate him.
No injuries were reported.
The investigation remains on-going.
