Police say a black man approached a 19-year-old customer as he was going to the bathroom, which is located on the side of the store.
The suspect put a knife to the teenager's neck and demanded money. The suspect was last seen running west on Dorwin Avenue with the victim's cash and wallet.
The suspect is described as being between 20 and 30 years of age, 6'2'' and having a thin build.
