Police searched lower Pike/Pine and a still snow-patched Freeway Park Monday afternoon after a hold-up at the nearby Pike Grocery.
According to East Precinct dispatches, the masked suspect entered the small grocery at Pike and Boren around 4:20 PM, told the cashier he had a gun, and demanded cash — reportedly he asked for only tens and twenties.
The suspect was described as a white male in his 20s or 30s with a thin build and wearing a hard hat, a white face mask, and a bright green and black construction jacket. He was last seen leaving the store on foot, headed east.
While the suspect said he was armed, no gun was displayed, according to police radio.
