Longmont police are searching for a suspect in an armed robbery Wednesday afternoon at a restaurant in the 1900 block of Ionosphere Street in the Prospect neighborhood.

At around 3:45 p.m., a man came into the store and ordered food, according to Longmont police Cmdr. Joel Post. Police say the man then went behind the counter and pulled a handgun on the cashier.

The suspect made the cashier open the register and left the store on foot with an undisclosed amount of money.

Post said the suspect is a possibly Hispanic or African-American man in his 30s or early 40s. He is believed to be 6-feet 3-inches tall with brown hair and brown eyes. Post said he was wearing a black knit scarf, a purple Colorado Rockies jacket and dark pants at the time of the robbery.

Those with further information can call non-emergency dispatch at 303-651-8501.
