The robber was seen leaving the area in a black, older-model, four-door sedan with tinted windows and no license plate, police said, adding that the vehicle is described as looking like an older Dodge Stratus.

The robber was described as white, in his late teens to early 20s, about 5 feet 5 inches to 5 feet 7 inches tall with a thin build and a short, military-style haircut. He was wearing a gray hooded sweatshirt and khaki shorts.
