      But he didn't use a gun or a knife.

      He was armed with pruning shears.

      It happened at a store on Yosemite parkway near Anderegg.

      Police say the man demanded money after point the shears at the clerk.

      But the clerk said "no."

      The man is 5-4, 140 pounds, and has tattoos on his arm and neck.

      Anyone with information is asked to call Merced police.
