The robber was not apprehended and it's unknown how much money, if any, he escaped with.

Employees at other stores in the area said they were alerted by an automated call from police to be on the lookout for the suspect. He was described by the FYI as a black male, large build, standing 6 foot 3 to 6 foot 5, wearing dark coat, blue jeans, dark scarf and light-colored gloves. His head was covered by a stocking cap.

Parents reported that dismissal at nearby Ivy Hill Elementary School at 2211 N. Burke Drive was delayed because of the police activity. School officials could not be reached for comment. Police said the school lockdown was ordered as a precaution.
