Police in Malden are looking for a man on the run after he robbed the Village Mart on Florence Street on Sunday.

He’s accused of assaulting a store clerk with a hypodermic needle.

The clerk says the suspect claimed he had a gun.

In the surveillance video you can see him get behind counter, there’s a struggle, and the escape as the clerk chases the suspect with what looks like a baseball bat.
