Police are looking for a man who robbed a Jamaica store at gunpoint last Wednesday.

The suspect, wearing a ski mask, whipped out a gun and forced a Mario’s 99 Cent Store employee to the ground, before taking $500 from his wallet and $50 from the counter, police said.

He entered the 108-10 Guy R. Brewer Blvd. store Jan. 29 about 5:30 a.m., emerging from a dark-colored SUV, according to authorities.

No other injuries were reported.

Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 800-577-TIPS (8477).
