As he was checking out, the man pulled a knife and demanded money. The cashier complied and the man fled with the money, leaving the items behind.

Police said the man was about 5-foot-8, between 150 and 185 pounds and had a goatee. He was wearing a beanie stocking cap with a horizontal stripe, a pullover, dark pants and a light green Spectrum shirt.

No one was injured.
