JONESBORO, AR - A suspect remains on the loose after the Malco Hollywood 12 Cinema in Jonesboro was robbed Sunday.

The incident happened around noon on East Parker Road.

Employees say the suspect, a black male who appeared to be in his 30's or 40's, walked into the theater an asked to speak to the manager.

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.
