Police are investigating an armed robbery at a west Salina tavern early Friday morning.

Just after 2 a.m. Friday, a masked man with a gun in hand entered through the rear door at Hank's Tavern, 116 S. Broadway Boulevard, Salina Police Lieutenant Jim Feldman said this morning. The man pointed the gun at a female employee and asked where the money was.

Feldman said the man then took a money bag with an undisclosed amount of cash and fled. He was last seen riding eastbound from the tavern on a bicycle.

The woman, and several other people who were still in the bar, were not injured, he said.

The robber was described as a 5'5" to 5'10" average build white male in his mid-20s to 30s. He was wearing a black hooded sweatshirt, gray pants, and black gloves, and had a mask over his face, possibly a bandana, Feldman said.

Surveillance cameras were on site and police plan to review video, Feldman said.
