Police responded to 562 E. 185th Street for a report of an armed robbery at 10 a.m. Monday.
The employee told police that when she was opening for business, a man passed by other waiting customers and pointed a silver semi-automatic weapon at her.
She was ordered inside and he took the deposit envelope from her and she told him there was no access to the safe in the store.
He then ran out of the store and ran north.
The incident is still being investigated.
