Police are searching for a man who robbed a grocery store at gunpoint Monday.

Investigators say the suspect entered Sam's Supermarket on the 2800 block of N. Front St. around 3:20 p.m., pointed a handgun at employees who were standing behind the counter and demanded money.

One of the store clerks took cash from the register and gave it to the suspect, according to officials.

Police say the suspect then ordered the employees to turn around and put their hands up.

He threatened to shoot them if they turned around, according to reports.

Authorities describe the suspect, who fled on foot in an unknown direction, as an approximately 5-feet 10-inch tall Hispanic man who was wearing a dark-colored hooded sweatshirt with a mulitcolored decal, black pants, and black and white sneakers.

The gun used in the robbery has a white grip.

Police ask anyone with information about the crime or the suspect to contact Philadelphia Police Department's East Detectives Division.
