A store on Harlem Road in the Town of Cheektowaga was robbed at around 6 p.m. Thursday, by a man who police said was armed with a handgun.
The man took an undetermined amount of cash from the Cash For Cans Store, near the intersection of Harlem Road and Walden Avenue, according to Cheektowaga Assistant Police Chief James Speyer.
Two workers were cleaning up the store when the individual came in through the back door and demanded money from the cash register and safe, Speyer said.
Speyer said the two witnesses said the man had a winter hat with a red ball on top of it and red trim and stars.
