GREENVILLE, PITT COUNTY -

Greenville Police said they are looking for an armed man who robbed several customers at a Greenville gaming store.

According to investigators, the robbery happened at Blue Ox Games at 504 W. 9th St. shortly after 9 p.m. Wednesday.

Police said about a dozen people were in the store when the armed suspect entered and took wallets from several customers. No shots were fired and no one was injured, investigators said.

"Officers canvassed the area [and] had a good perimeter set up. But obviously, the guy had some type of escape planned and he was out," said Sgt. Joe Friday of the Greenville Police Department.

At last check, police said there was no description of the robber. Anyone with information is asked to call Greenville Police at (252) 329-4315.

The owner of Blue Ox Games told NewsChannel 12 he has never had a problem in his store before the robbery. He has owned Blue Ox Games for more than two years.
