A robber who held up the Radio Shack store on Post Road East just before closing Friday night remains at large.
The suspect fled with an undetermined amount of cash from the electronics store at 877 Post Road East after confronting the clerk and demanding money shortly before the store was set to close at 9 p.m.
The man indicated he had a gun in a pocket, however, did not show a weapon.
After being given money from the register, the man fled on foot. A search by police patrols, assisted by a K-9 unit, failed to determine his escape route.
