A suspected robber who allegedly held up a Lake Elsinore Circle K is being sought by police, and it's hoped the attached surveillance photos will lead to an arrest.

The alleged robbery took place around 3:35 a.m. Monday at the Circle K located at 16331 Lakeshore Drive.

"The suspect entered the Circle K convenience store at this location carrying a machete. He approached the counter and asked for a pack of cigarettes.  When he paid for the cigarettes and the cashier opened the register, the suspect said he had a gun and demanded all the money in the drawer.  After collecting a small amount of cash, the suspect left the business," read a news release from Lt. Zachary Hall of the Lake Elsinore Sheriff's Station.

The Lake Elsinore Police Department is asking for the public’s help identifying the suspect.  If you know this person, or anything about this robbery, contact Investigator Cornett at (951) 245-3357, or by email at lakeelsinorestation@riversidesheriff.org.

Machete or gun? Which one … The clerk should have laughed at him as 99.9% of these perps are scared little cowards to begin with…

SA- yes but there is always that one- a machete would require close contact and the possibility of dismemberment-how fun. But you are correct, most of these tweekers are cowards whose mommies didn't give them enough love-or milk.
