HAROLD, Ky. (WYMT) - Police are investigating a robbery that happened in Floyd County Wednesday night.

They say a man entered Newman's Shop A Lot in Harold with a big stick demanding cash, and the whole thing was caught on camera.

It was a normal night at work for this Newman's Shop A Lot employee, until a certain man entered the store.

"At 8:41 p.m. Post 9 Pikeville received 911 calls from Newman's Shop A Lot," said Trooper Shaun Little.

The store was being robbed, but the cameras were rolling.

The folks at Newman's Shop A Lot say it looked like the man was carrying a large piece of wood which he shoved into the clerk's back and pushed her behind the counter.

The man, described as a while male about six feet tall, wearing blue jeans, gloves and a mask, is seen taking money from both registers before running out the door.

"The unidentified male left the scene on foot with an undisclosed amount of cash. Troopers remained in the area and canvassed the area trying to locate the subject but was unable to do so," said Trooper Little.

No one in the store was injured, and police are asking anyone with information to contact them.

Anyone with information should call Kentucky State Police Post 9 at (606) 433-7711.
