SOUTH PORTLAND, Maine — South Portland police are searching for a man they say robbed a convenience store on Cottage Road late Wednesday.

The male suspect made off with a small amount of cash from the Big Apple store, South Portland police Lt. Steve Webster said in an email.

The man, who was not armed, entered the store just before 11:30 p.m. and demanded cash from the register.
