Police in Pennsylvania say they're searching for a man who carjacked a Mister Softee ice cream truck while armed with a knife.

WFMZ-TV reports the truck's driver was held up in Reading on Friday afternoon. Investigators say the suspect jumped into the truck, made the driver take him to another area and then grabbed $200 in cash.

Police say the man jumped out of the truck on the 1200 block of Greenwich Street and fled.

The driver wasn't hurt.

“I just think it’s pretty ridiculous. People have no common sense whatsoever and things are just getting out of control here,” area resident Dory Medina told WFMZ.
