A robbery late Monday night at the Kangaroo at 926 W. University Ave. is under investigation by Gainesville police.
Lt. Jorge Campos said the robbery was reported at 11:20 p.m. after a man went behind the counter, implied he had a gun and got money from the register. He left the store in a northwest direction.
No one was hurt, Campos said. Police set up a perimeter in the area and did a K-9 search, but the culprit was not found.
The robber was white, and 6-feet-tall, slim and in his late 20s or early 30s. He wore a black baseball cap, a black or gray long-sleeved shirt and blue jeans.
Anyone with information should contact detectives at 393-7670.
