A man armed with a knife robbed a Jessup convenience store of two cartons of cigarettes Friday and fled in a car, Howard County police said.

The clerk, Anna Bobo, 44, of Elkridge, was not injured in the robbery of the Royal Farm Store in the 8200 block of Lark Brown Road, police said.

About 1: 20 a.m., the robber entered the store with a scarf covering his face, rushed toward the clerk waving a knife and demanded cartons of cigarettes, police said.

After the clerk handed him two cartons of Marlboro Lights, the robber ran out and drove off in a dark-colored, mid-sized car, police said.

The robber was described as a white male in his late teens to early 20s, 5 feet, 8 inches tall and weighing about 130 pounds. He wore green sweat pants and a sweat shirt, a dark hat and white tennis shoes, police said.
