A man robbed a business at knifepoint Saturday morning in the Old Town neighborhood on the Near North Side.

The man, thought to be between 40 and 50, entered a business about 10:50 a.m. in the 1200 block of North Wells and approached a female employee, according to Chicago Police. He then pulled out a knife and announced a robbery.

The man took an undisclosed amount of cash from the register before running away, police said. He was wearing a light brown skullcap and a black jacket.

No injuries were reported and no one was in custody Saturday afternoon, police said.
