Armed man robs Knoxville convenience store

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT)--Just after 6pm Thursday night a man carrying a hand gun walked into the Cruze Market and Deli on Asheville Highway.

Police say the robber is about 6 feet tall, 160 pounds, around 40 years old, with spiked black hair, and gray unshaven facial hair. He was wearing a black t-shirt, blue jeans and had several tattoos.

    Would it be so terrible to state the race of this armed robber? I'm sure the clerk knew whether he was black/white, etc. These news stories are pretty terrible anymore about including important information. I am not going to read these anymore. What's the point??!
