METAIRIE, LA (WVUE) -

A man wearing light blue jeans, a white T-shirt and a bright yellow vest is being called the perpetrator in an armed robbery at a store in Metairie.

Employees at the Payless on Veterans Memorial Blvd. said the man walked in the store, asked for boots, presented a weapon, demanded cash then fled the scene after.

The store manager said there was one customer in the store at the time but that no one was hurt.

Investigators were on the scene questioning everyone inside at the time of the incident.

Employees at a nearby business said it happened sometime just after 10 a.m. Tuesday and that it was so fast they barely realized anything happened at all.

The manager at a another nearby business said a camera likely caught images of the suspect as he fled the scene, meanwhile the manager at Payless said the suspect made off with $50 cash.
