GLENDALE HEIGHTS — Police in west suburban Glendale Heights are asking for the public’s help in finding the man who robbed a 7-Eleven store at gunpoint early Tuesday.

About 2:45 a.m. Tuesday, the man entered the 7-Eleven at 1408 Bloomingdale Road in Glendale Heights brandishing a semi-automatic pistol, a release from Glendale Heights police said. He demanded money and left the store after the clerk handed him an undisclosed amount of cash.
