During the robbery, he was wearing a black hooded sweatshirt and gray pants with black stripes.
While it was believed that a weapon was used in the incident, currently it cannot be confirmed that the suspect had a weapon or used one in the alleged robbery, although an Advanced Life Support EMS unit was on the scene afterward to treat an injury on the scene.
Following the incident, the suspect left with what appeared to be an accomplice in a dark colored mini-van or SUV, but the license plate number of the vehicle was not obtained.
