Masked bandit robs convenience store

A man wearing a mask similiar to the one featured in the movie "Scream" robbed a Kansas City convenience store Sunday afternoon.

A witness discreetly followed the robber after the 2:15 p.m. heist at the Valero station downtown at 500 E. 10th Street and called police.

Officers arrested a man, who was later identified by at least one witness who saw his face when he adjusted his mask during the holdup. The arrested man denied committing the robbery.

Detectives plan to send their case file to Jackson County prosecutors today for possible charges.
