POWELL (WATE) - A north Knox County convenience store was robbed Monday evening by a man with a knife.

The Knox County Sheriff's Office says the man walked into the Weigel's store, 7444 Clinton Highway, around 6:30 p.m.

Witnesses say the man approached the register as if to make a purchase, but when the clerk opened the register the suspect brandished a large knife and lunged at the clerk.

The suspect then grabbed an unknown amount of cash from the drawer and fled.

He is described as a white male, thin, 5'9"-5'10", 150 to 160 pounds, 20 to 35 years old, and unshaven.

He was wearing a charcoal grey hoodie, jeans, white tennis shoes and a dark toboggan cap.

Anyone with information is urged to call the Knox County Sheriff's Office at (865) 215-2243.
