LONGVIEW, WA (KPTV) -

A man swiped some candy, but no cash, during a grocery store robbery in Longview.

He was caught on camera at the Twentieth Avenue Grocery just after 10 a.m. Tuesday.

The robber pulled out a knife and told a clerk to give him money from the cash register, police said.

When the employee didn't do what he wanted, he snatched some candy and beef jerky before taking off, investigators told FOX 12.

The worker was not hurt.

Police are still looking for the robber who's described as a white man in his 20s, of medium height and very thin.

Anyone who may have witnessed the robbery is urged to call the Longview Police Department.
