ORANGE COUNTY, Fla. - Investigators are searching for a man who robbed a convenience store clerk at gunpoint early Thursday morning.
 
According to Orange County sheriff's investigators, the clerk was working alone at the 7-Eleven store on Landstar Boulevard when the man, who had a black-hooded sweatshirt over his head and a bandanna covering much of his face, walked in with a handgun and demanded money.
 
Investigators said the clerk handed over money and the man ran to a nearby McDonald's where he jumped into the passenger side of a waiting silver car. That car then drove north on Landstar.
 
Police said the description of the robber is similar to that of a gunman who robbed a Circle K store on South Orange Blossom Trail Tuesday morning.

In both cases, the robber came in with a handgun, demanded cash and fled. No one was injured in either robbery.

Investigators released surveillance video and said they were checking surrounding businesses for more surveillance video.
