PITTSBURGH (AP/KDKA) - Police say a robber asked for a cookie then demanded cash at a Subway store in Pittsburgh.

The heist occurred Wednesday afternoon at the store on East Carson Street.

Police say after asking for a cookie, the man placed his hand in his pocket as though he had a gun and told the clerk he wanted money from the cash register.

The bandit fled with an undetermined amount of cash.

The suspect is described as having a thin build. At the time of the robbery, he was wearing a black/gray sweatshirt, black pants and a black baseball hat that appeared to have a Monster energy drink logo on it.

Police say no surveillance footage is available.

He was last seen turning right on East Carson Street in the direction of the 2600 block.

Anyone with information on this robbery should call police at 412-323-7800.
