Some frightening moments at the Wawa on Philadelphia Pike Saturday night.

State police say a man entered the store at 727 Philadelphia Pike brandishing a knife as he approached the sales counter, not demanding money, but rather, a carton of cigarettes.

The 25-year-old employee handed over the carton, and the suspect ran off. No one was injured.

State troopers are looking for your help in finding the robber, described as a male 40 to 45 years old, between 5'11" and 6'0" tall, and weighing 170 to 200 lbs, with an average build. Police say he was last seen wearing a blue polo shirt, jeans, and a dark baseball hat.
