Robber with Knife Steals Guns from Pawn Shop

CORPUS CHRISTI - A young robber managed to get away with several guns as he robbed the Cash America Pawn on S. Port Avenue armed only with a knife.

The robber was able to grab three pistols before he took off down the street on a bicycle. A pawn shop employee hopped in a car to follow the guy to the other side of the Crosstown Expressway. Once the robber on a bicycle made it to Cloyde Street, he ditched the bike and hid behind a house.

The employees lost sight of him at that point. Police locked down the neighborhood as they went door-to-door looking for the man. After about 2 hours they decided he had escaped the area.

The robber is described as a young man who was wearing a grey hoodie and beige pants.
