WICHITA FALLS, TX (KAUZ) -

Wichita Falls police continue to search for a man who they said robbed the Cash Store, in the 1500 block of Southwest Parkway, at gunpoint.

It happened just after 1:30 p.m. when the suspect entered the store with a silver gun and demanded money.

They then got away with an unknown amount of cash.

Police set a perimeter to try and find the suspect, but were unable to do so.

Sergeant, Harold McClure, said there were people inside the store at the time of the robbery.

"There were a couple of customers in the store at that time," Sergeant McClure said. "There were no injuries and we're thankful for that. However the suspect was able to flee on foot northbound on Della Drive."

Police are describing the suspect as a 6 foot 3" black male that weighs around 190 pounds.

He was wearing a light colored hoodie, black sweatpants, blue shoes, a blue mask and bandana, gloves, and sunglasses.

If you have any information, you are urged to call Crime Stoppers at (940)-322-9888. 

You can remain anonymous while giving a tip.
