The robbery occurred before 3 p.m. at the Town Plaza 5 Kerosote Theatre before it opened for business. The employee was the only person working when the gunman came through an unlocked front door and walked into the theater office, said police spokesman Sgt. Rick Schmidt. The employee was not harmed and the suspect did not fire the handgun. The robber was described as being in his 30s, wearing a blue coat and blue jeans and with a mustache.
