The man, armed with a folding knife, entered the Conoco at 3089 Middle Country Rd. in Lake Grove about 5:45 p.m. Friday and demanded cash from an employee, authorities said. He fled with cash.

The man was described as in his mid-30s or 40s with a limp, authorities said. He was wearing jeans and a black hooded jacket.
