GREEN BAY, Wis. (WBAY) - Members of the Green Bay Police Department say no one was injured after what they say was a robbery at El Ranchito late Sunday afternoon.

According to police, officers were called to the specialty convenience store, located on the 200 block of Webster Avenue, at about 5:30 p.m. Sunday.

Police say the suspect, who officers could only identify as a man at this time, used a knife during the incident, and was able to get away with an undisclosed amount of cash.

Officials attempted to track the suspect using a K9 unit, however no one is in custody as of this time.

Juan Ortega, an employee at El Ranchito, says a man pointed a knife at Ortega’s colleague, who Ortega identified as a female.
