Here is the rest of the story from another source:

"The robbery occurred at approximately 7:13 p.m. with witnesses describing a white, possibly Hispanic male in his 20s wearing a ski mask, gloves and hoodie entering the store and holding up a sign informing cashiers he had a weapon. No weapon was believed seen, however."
