LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -

Las Vegas Metro police said they are looking for a man who reportedly asked for a cookie before robbing a business. 

Police said the suspect entered a business near Sierra Vista Drive and Maryland Parkway and asked for a cookie.The manager bagged the cookie and rang it up on the cash register. The suspect then pulled out a gun and demanded money. 

The manager, Eric Rouse, said he wasn’t scared at first, because it started off innocent. Rouse said he was mopping the floors when a man walked in and placed his order.

“The guy came in and ordered two oatmeal-raisin cookies,” said Rouse.

Rouse said he looked down for just two seconds to pack the cookies up and the man pulled out a weapon.

“As I proceeded to ring him in,” said Rouse. “He pulled out his gun, then he asked me for everything in the register.”

The gunman took off down the street, with $69.00 and left the cookies behind.

Rouse said he was shocked, but he wasn’t afraid, now he has some words for the crook.

“That’s two felonies,” said Rouse. “Not only are you robbing me, you’re robbing the store and it’s just stupid to do so.”

The suspect was described by police as a light-skinned black male adult between the ages of 25- and 30-years-old, standing about 6' tall and weighing approximately 180 pounds. He was last seen wearing a gray hoodie under a blue track jacket with a red stripe down the arms, dark blue or black pants with red and white shoes. 

Anyone with information is urged to contact Metro's Robbery Section at 702-828-3591. To remain anonymous, call Crime Stoppers at 702-385-5555.
