The man made off with an undisclosed amount of cash and was last seen running behind the store.

Police describe the man as standing about 5-9 to 5-11 and having a stocky build. He was wearing a white T-shirt over his face, dark jeans, brown boots -- and Mohawk hairdo. He was armed with a black semi-automatic handgun.

Police ask that anyone with information about the robbery to contact Caddo Crime Stoppers at 673-7373.
