A man who said he had a knife robbed Sterling Food Store, 3645 Upton Ave., escaping with an undetermined amount of money late Saturday.
Employees said the man had been in the store earlier in the day. About 10:15 p.m., the suspect, claiming he had a knife, walked around the counter and threatened the clerk, whom he ordered to open the register, police said.
The man took money from one register but left when the cashier could not open the second register.
