LANCASTER – A gunman wearing hospital scrubs, a surgical mask and a shower cap held up a Lancaster cigarette shop Tuesday evening, authorities said.
The incident happened around 6:30 p.m. at J’s Cig at 1248 West Avenue K in Lancaster, according to Lancaster Community Relations deputy Michael Rust.
A man, dressed in hospital attire, entered the store, brandished a handgun and stole an undisclosed amount of money, Rust said.
“Nobody was injured,” Rust said. “Apparently it was just the clerk in the store by himself, and it was a typical stick up.”
The thief, described as a black male about 30 years old, fled the scene on a bicycle, sheriff’s officials said.
Anyone with information on this crime is asked to contact Lancaster Station’s Robbery Suppression Team at 661-948-8466. To remain anonymous, call Crime Stoppers at 800-222-8477.
