After an assistant manager offered his help, the suspect then pulled out a gun and told him and other employees to walk into an office and to lie down on the floor.

He then demanded the assistant manager to give him money from a safe and a videotape from a security camera.

Afterwards, the suspect took off and witnesses say they don't know if he ran away or if he left in a vehicle.
