Huntington Police are searching for a suspect in a robbery after an employee chased him with a weapon.
Police said a man demanded money from the cashier at the Gino's on Norway Ave. at around 9 p.m. on Thursday. The man kept his hand in his pocket, indicating he had a gun, police said.
Police said as the suspect fled with cash, an employee with a legally concealed weapon chased the man outside. Police said the employee pointed the weapon at the suspect who screamed and fell into a puddle, claiming that he didn't have a gun.
