A masked man brandishing a screwdriver robbed the 7-Eleven store early this morning at Carey and Tillicum Roads.

The man ran off down Tillicum Road toward the Trans-Canada Highway.

The suspect is described as white, five-foot-10, about 165 pounds, wearing a tan baseball cap, sunglasses and a mask,  a tan long-sleeve shirt with a reflective strip on the back, green pants, black Adidas runners with white stripes and possibly white latex gloves.

Saanich police are reviewing the store's video surveillance this morning.
