WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) -

Wilmington Police have confirmed that an armed robbery took place at the Scotchman at 2902 Carolina Beach Road early Friday morning.

Police tell us a male suspect, armed with a knife, ordered a Scotchman employee to get down on the floor, before making off with the employee's cell phone as well as an undisclosed amount of money.

Police believe the male had short hair, was in his mid-40s, and was about 5'8"-5'9" and weighing about 140-150 pounds.

They say he was wearing a burgundy button-down shirt and dark pants.

We do not know of any injuries at this time but we expect to get more information shortly.
