NEWARK - A Newark family is recovering after an armed robber stormed into their bodega last week.

Henry Flow, the owner's nephew, says the suspect entered El Flow Mini Market with a sawed-off shotgun this past Friday afternoon. The man forced the owner to the ground, stole $150 in cash and then proceeded toward a hidden stash of money inside the register.

In total, he made off with $585.

The suspect was seen wearing a blue knit cap and a gray sweatshirt. As he left the store, he was seen on camera placing the weapon into a black plastic garbage bag.

There were no customers inside at the time of the incident.
