Colorado Springs police hunted a gun-toting robber Saturday afternoon after he stole cash from an Academy Boulevard home improvement store.

Officers were called to Lowes at 701 N. Academy Blvd. just before 3 p.m. A clerk said a robber came to a register and pulled a gun before demanding cash.

The robber got an undisclosed amount of cash.

"The suspect then fled the store and was last seeing running towards Galley Road," police said in a news release.

Police say the mustachioed crook wore all black and sported an eyebrow piercing.
