Conway police are looking for leads to identify a man who employees at Cricket Wireless, 825 Oak St., say robbed them at gunpoint around noon Friday.
About a dozen employees and friends stood outside the store at about 1 p.m., visibly shaken. People hugged as police marked off the business with yellow crime-scene tape.
“We’ve just been robbed!” one employee said.
A man described as black and wearing a suit of yellow, raincoat material entered the business and demanded money, said La Tresha Woodruff, public information officer for the Conway Police Department. The man used a pinch-style pick-up tool to grab money from the employees, she said.
“Police are checking for surveillance video in the area that could give clues of the man’s description and his direction of travel,” Woodruff said.
