Posted: Updated:

KENNEWICK, Wash. - An armed, masked man robbed the Skippers restaurant on West Kennewick Avenue in Kennewick Sunday night. 

Police said he came in through the front door, demanded cash while pointing a hand gun at a worker, then ran out the back door headed south.  The man entered the restaurant around 9:45 p.m. right before closing.

The store manager told KNDU the suspect got away with some cash but did not hurt any of the workers.

The suspect is described as a white man wearing a blue zip up coat, blue jeans, and a ski mask over his face.  He had a medium build and may weigh around 160 to 180 pounds.

If you have any information on the crime you're asked to call Kennewick Police.
