An ice cream shop was robbed by an offender who may have been armed with a handgun, according to an employee who said he was forced into the store's basement.
The alleged offender took the store's cash and fled out the back door.
The offender is a dirty-looking male, white in his early 20's, 6' to 6'2" tall, medium build, with a Mohawk hair style that is buzzed on the sides and slightly longer on the top part. The offender wore a blue sweatshirt and dark sweatpants.
Officers combed the area, paying special attention to homeless hangouts under the L tracks, without success.
The case was preliminarily logged as an armed robbery with a handgun because the employee may have seen the barrel of a firearm protruding from the assailant's sweatshirt. CPD case HW444072.
