MAGNOLIA, Del. -- The Delaware State Police say they are investigating the armed robbery of an area convenience store that occurred last night.

The robbery happened at around 8:30 pm, police say, when a male suspect entered the Uncle Sam's Market located at the 50 West Birdie Lane, Magnolia. Police report the suspect, armed with a handgun, confronted an employee of the store and demanded money from the register.
