A Destin convenience store was held-up early this morning by a man who flashed a knife at the clerk before taking the cash.

Deputies were called to the Circle K at 701 Harbor Boulevard shortly before 1 a.m.

The clerk says a black man wearing a black baseball cap and a purple sweatshirt came in with a black knife, pointed it at him, and demanded money. The robber left the store heading west on foot.

Anyone with information on the armed robbery is asked to contact the Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Office at 850-651-7400 or Emerald Coast Crime Stoppers at 850-863-TIPS.
