VANCOUVER, WA (KPTV) -

Police are looking for a suspect who robbed Torque Coffee on Columbia Street while wearing a disguise this morning.

Just before 8 a.m. the suspect walked into the Vancouver business, took out a handgun and demanded money.

A police spokesman says the robber, who was wearing eye glasses beneath a mask like the one in the horror movie Scream, got away with an undisclosed amount of cash from the register, as well as property belonging to the employee.

Police say the gunman then forced the employee into the walk-in refrigerator and told her stay there. 

Though frightened, the employee was not physically hurt during the incident.  

Police did a check around the area but were unable to find the suspect.

The suspect is described as a white man, just over 6 feet tall with an average build, wearing the "Scream" mask, as well as a black hoodie and black jeans.  He may have had facial hair.

Anyone with information is being asked to contact Vancouver Police.
