According to police, a convenience store clerk called police Monday after she noticed a man walking into the store wearing a ski mask and carrying a sword in a sheath on his belt. When the man noticed her, he pulled his mask off and asked if she was calling about him, police said.
When she said she was, police said the man left the store and walked into nearby Galaxy Cleaners.
There, police said he pointed a sword at the register and asked a clerk to give him all the money inside. Police said he left after she told him she couldn't open the drawer.
Police still are searching for the man, who witnesses said appeared to be in his late 20s.
