East Lyme — State police are investigating the armed robbery early Saturday night of the Whimsical Consignment Shop at 18 Pennsylvania Ave.

State police said a man entered the store, displayed a knife and demanded money from the store clerk. The man received an undisclosed amount of cash, walked out of the store and was later seen leaving the area on a motorcycle.

State police responded at 6:09 p.m. and searched the area. Detectives gathered physical and forensic evidence.

The suspect is described as a white male wearing a bright blue hooded sweatshirt, shorts and a dark colored bandanna over his face.

State Police ask anyone who was in the area and observed anything to call them at 860-848-6532. All calls will be kept confidential.
