State police at the Fogelsville barracks were summoned at 8:48 p.m. Dec. 23 to the Walgreen's department store on Hamilton Boulevard, Allentown, after a cashier was robbed at gunpoint.

Police said an 18-year-old female was approached by a man displaying a semi-automatic handgun and ordered to give him the money from the cash drawer. After receiving the money, the actor fled out of the store and appeared to head alongside the Mill Creek Road of the store, which is located in Lower Macungie Township.

Police said the gunman is described as possibly being a Hispanic male, about 5-6 to 5-8 tall with a thin build. He was wearing a purple hooded sweatshirt, grey pants, possibly jeans, and black sneakers.

Anyone with information about the incident or man is asked to call police at (610) 395-1438.
