He ran out the backdoor to the nearby cvs and called police. His boss was still inside handing over the contents of the register which was somewhere around $50.

Pittsburgh police say after the robber took the money, he ran up Baum Boulevard towards Morewood Avenue.

Police are looking into the possibility that the man drove away in a brown car which is what a robber was driving recently when he held up the same store.

Police are looking for a black man with a newly grown beard who is 6-feet tall and weighs around 200 pounds.
