Whitehall police responded to a report of robbery at 8:30 p.m. Sept. 8 at Foot Locker, 3743 E. Broad St.
An employee told police a male wearing black clothing and a pink mask entered the store and pointed a black semi-automatic pistol at him.
The gunman demanded the employee put his cellphone on the floor and walk out from behind the cash register.
The suspect picked up a jersey and scanned it, opening the cash register, and took approximately $500, according to the report.
Another employee in different part of the store activated an alarm.
The suspect ran away from the store and behind an adjacent fast-food restaurant.
Police obtained a video of the robbery. A store manager told police that based on the mannerisms and appearance on the video the suspect might have been a former employee who was fired several months ago.
