Portland police say a masked man walked into Freihofer’s Bakery at 1037 Forest Ave. on Tuesday afternoon, showed a large knife and demanded that the clerk hand over all the business’ cash.

The clerk, who was not injured, complied and the man ran away, Lt. Gary Hutcheson said. The robbery was reported at 4:50 p.m.

“He cleaned out the (cash) register,” Hutcheson said.

The robber is described as having a slight build and standing 5 feet 6 inches tall. Anyone with information about the robbery is urged to contact Portland police.
