No one was hurt in the robbery, and the robber made off with just a small amount of cash, police say.

Although the bandit was wearing a Scream-style Halloween mask, he's described as a white male in his 20s with a slim build. Police estimate he was between five-foot-nine and six feet tall.

During the robbery, he was wearing jeans with a light-coloured belt and a dark-coloured hoodie with lettering on the front that possibly read "New York" as well as red letters that said "A & F" underneath. He also had on light coloured running shoes.

Although the photo they released show him brandishing the gun with his left hand, they say he used both hands to hold the gun during the robbery.

Officers continue to investigate, but are asking for the public to call them if they have any information.
