After the robbery, the man ran into a wooded area on the 500 block of North Main Street. A search that included canines was called off at around 2 p.m.

The suspect is described as a black male, 40 to 50-years-old, 5 feet 11 inches to 6 feet tall, weighing approximately 230-250 pounds. He was last seen wearing dark pants, a green long-sleeved shirt and a Mountain Dew baseball cap.
