The owner of 7-Eleven on Salem Avenue was robbed at gunpoint of the store's deposit bag as he was leaving the business around lunchtime Tuesday, Hagerstown Police Department Detective Chris Kayser said.

Mian Hussein, 53, was robbed at gunpoint at about 11:30 a.m. as "he was going out to his car to leave" the store with an undisclosed amount of money, according to Kayser and a police written release. Hussein was not injured, Kayser said.

The robber, who was younger than 25 years old, was described as a Hispanic or light-skinned black man wearing a white T-shirt and baggy dark jeans, Kayser said.

According to the release, the robber, who was short with a medium build, was wearing a white hat with "NY" lettering.
