Gloucester Township Police are searching for a suspect wanted in connection with an armed robbery.

Police are seeking the public's help finding a suspect they say is wanted in an armed robbery in Gloucester Township.

The incident occurred at 4 a.m. Wednesday at the 7-Eleven store on Church Street in Blackwood. Police say a thin black male, approximately 20 years old, entered the store and asked for cigarettes. 

According to police, he can be seen on surveillance pulling a large knife from his left pocket and demanding money.

The suspect was wearing a plaid "Jeff Cap," a long black coat with an exposed zipper, dark pants, black and white sneakers and a blue latex glove on his right hand.
