Cobb store robbed

Cobb County police are looking for the gunman who held up the Cost Plus World Market on Barrett Parkway on Monday night.

The suspect approached the manager in the middle of the sales floor about 7:15 p.m. and "discretely displayed a handgun that was tucked into his waistband," Cobb police spokesman Joe Hernandez said.

Hernandez said the gunman then demanded that the manager lead him to, and open, the safe, which she did.

After receiving an undisclosed amount of money, the gunman made the manager leave the store with him and escort him down the sidewalk to an adjacent business. At that point, he fled the area on foot, Hernandez said.

Hernandez described the suspect as white, about 5 feet 6 to 5 feet 7 inches tall, and weighing 160 pounds. He was wearing an "AC Delco" baseball cap, a dark jacket, and a green and white striped polo shirt.

Hernandez asked that anyone with information on the incident call detectives at 770-499-3945.
