A knife-wield­ing man par­layed a dol­lar bill in­to a lot more cash as he held up a Mor­rell Park con­veni­ence store early Monday.

The rob­bery oc­curred at about 12:30 a.m. at Wawa, 10550 Knights Road. The sus­pect picked up a candy bar, placed it on the front counter and handed a dol­lar bill to the clerk, who opened the cash re­gister to com­plete the trans­ac­tion. That’s when the rob­ber bran­dished a knife, threatened to kill the em­ploy­ee and de­man­ded money, said Lt. Den­nis Rosen­baum of North­east De­tect­ives.

The crook grabbed an un­dis­closed amount of cash and fled on foot in an un­known dir­ec­tion. He was de­scribed as 35 years old, white, 6 feet 1 inch tall and thin, wear­ing a blue hood­ie and blue jeans.
