Someone police are calling "Scoop" or "Scoops" assaulted a teenage employee at an ice cream store and fled after taking cash Tuesday afternoon.
The robber told the clerk he had a weapon, but did not show one, when he robbed The Big Dipper ice cream store at 1033 Virginia Ave. at about 1 p.m., Sgt. Paul Kifer of the Hagers-town Police Department said.
The robber was dressed in jeans and a white T-shirt, Kifer said.
Officers found a white T-shirt near the shop. Written in permanent marker were the words, "Scoops (or Scoop) & Diane 2007 Foreva," police said.
The robber was described as a dark-skinned black male, between 5 feet 5 inches and 5 feet 9 inches tall, weighing 220 to 230 pounds and wearing a white T-shirt and blue jeans, police said in a news release.
