PRINCE GEORGE, Va. -- Police are asking for the public's help to find the man who robbed a vape shop in Prince George County Friday night.

Officers were called to the Vape King in the 6800 block of Commons Drive just after 11:55 p.m. for a report of a robbery in progress.

The suspect stole an undisclosed amount of cash from an employee before running out of the back of the store and "fleeing the area on foot," Grochmal said.

The suspect was described as a black male, who was wearing a blonde, shoulder-length wig with a black cloth covering his face, according to police.
