Police searched a southeast Portland neighborhood Thursday for a man who robbed a barber shop while wearing a Scream mask and carrying a handgun.

Employees at Rooks Barber Shop, located at 35th Avenue and Division Street, said the man entered the shop and demanded money. He was armed with a gun and obtained an undisclosed amount of money from the barber shop staff.

He left the shop and was last seen walking westbound on Division Street.

Several officers searched the neighborhood, which is considered a hotbed for Portland's food scene, but they were unable to find the robber.

He is described as white, 6' tall and skinny. In addition to the Scream mask, he wore a dark-colored hoody and dark-colored jeans. His age is unknown.

Anyone with information on his identity or whereabouts is asked to call 503-823-0405.
