Dispatchers said the man displayed a box cutter during the robbery, demanded cash, and fled the area on foot.

The suspect was “covered from head to toe” during the incident, according to police. Scanner traffic from investigators indicate the man used a scarf to cover his face and was wearing gloves. 

No injuries were reported.
