Fayetteville police are investigating the armed robbery of the Lane Bryant store at the Fayette Pavilion early Sunday evening.
The assailant apparently posed as a customer, placing clothing on the counter before pulling out a gun and demanding money along with the employees’ cellphones, police said.
The gunman was described as a black male approximately 5’6” and 130 pounds wearing a khaki jacket and bluejeans with dark clothes underneath, police said.
He left the area with another woman who previously had entered the store with him: a black female described as being about 5’4” wearing blue jeans and a black hoodie, police said.
The gunman left with an undisclosed amount of money and the employees’ cellphones, police said.
The employees were forced to go behind the counter as the duo left the store, police said.
