Meyer said a canine unit searched the area for the bandit without success. Officials said the suspect was observed heading north from the scene on foot.

Authorities said the suspect is described as a black man in his 30s, believed to be 5 feet 10 inches tall and 160 to 180 pounds.

He was last seen wearing blue jeans and a white bandanna. Meyer said the man also was described as wearing white shoes with black trim, dark jeans, a red sweatshirt with writing on the shoulder and front, with some type of emblem on the top of the hood.

The suspect implied he had a weapon, but it was not displayed, police said.
