BATON ROUGE- Police are on the hunt for a man who stole an undisclosed amount of cash from a convenience store during a rush hour armed robbery.

The "male subject entered through the front door and approached the cashier at the front counter, raised his shirt and showed the cashier a handgun, [and] demanded money from the register," a department spokesperson said in a news release late Thursday.

It happened at the Circle K on Plank Road around 4:45 Thursday.

The man had a black cloth covering his head and was able to get away.

No one was injured in the ordeal.
