The spokesperson said a man walked in around 7 p.m. with a heavy coat and his face covered. He walked right up to the register with one hand kept in his pocket, told the worker that he didn't want anyone to get hurt, reached into the register, took money and left.

The robber is described as a 6 foot black male. He was wearing a grey coat, dark pants, a scarf around his face and a dark winter hat.

It is unclear if the man was armed and it is unclear how much money was stolen.
