At approximately 11pm Tuesday night, West Hazleton Police responded to an armed robbery at Pantry Quik along North Broad Street in West Hazleton.
The suspect was originally described as a black or Hispanic male armed with a handgun wearing dark colored sweat pants, a red shirt, a blue sweater, and a ski mask with a furry ball on top.
Police believe the male may have been wearing makeup around his eyes under the ski mask in order to conceal his race.
The male fled the area on foot, successfully stealing an undetermined amount of cash.
Anyone with information is asked to contact the West Hazleton Police Department.
