VAN BUREN, AR - Van Buren Police say a masked man walked into the Pointer Express Convenience Store Sunday night, pointed a gun at the clerk, and demanded money from the register.

While robbing the store, police say the man told the clerk he had a bomb and that he would set it off if she called the police.
