(KMOV) – A robber escaped with $18,000 in cash after robbing an armored car worker in broad daylight.

Sources say a Loomis armored car pulled up to Ace Cash Express at 3655 South Grand Blvd. in south St. Louis around noon on Monday.  A guard, delivering a bag of cash, reportedly walked inside the business. 

Before an employee of Ace Cash Express could let that guard in a second, locked door, another man entered the business with a gun drawn. 

That suspect took the bag of cash and backed out of the business, pointing the gun at the guard.  Another guard inside the armored car called police.

St. Louis police say the suspect was last seen running north on South Grand.  He is described as a black male in his 30's or 40's, 5' 10" and 215 pounds.  He was wearing a puffy, navy blue jacket, gray hoodie and blue jeans.

No injuries were reported.
