A man robbed a Baymeadows Kangaroo store Saturday night, and now Jacksonville police are trying to identify him.

Police said the man went into the store at 8350 Baymeadows Road about 8:30 p.m. and pulled a ski mask over his face before he turned to the counter. He displayed a firearm and demanded all the money in the register, including the change, before fleeing the store on foot in an unknown direction, police said.

The robber is described as a black man in his early 20s, 5 feet 9 inches tall and 140 pounds. He was wearing a grey Nike hooded sweatshirt, a black ski mask, three-quarter-length baggy dark shorts, black and white tennis shoes and black gloves. He displayed a black and silver semiautomatic handgun.

Anyone who has any information about the man's identity or location is asked to call the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office at 904-630-0500 or Crime Stoppers at 866-845-TIPS.
