Surveillance video released Thursday shows a man in a black ski mask with gray stripes run into the store waving a knife and gesturing towards the cash register.

"He said, 'Give me all the money. Give me all the money.' He came with a big knife, so I was very scared and I give all the money, " said Paul Shah, who was behind the counter at the time of the robbery.
