An armed robber held up the Paycheck Advance at 44th Street and Cornhusker Highway last Friday evening, a Lincoln police spokeswoman said Wednesday.

The man walked in at 7:30 p.m., pointed a handgun at the clerk and demanded money, leaving with an undisclosed amount of cash, Officer Angela Sands said.

The man's face was partially covered, and police had only a generic description of him Wednesday. Officers are reviewing surveillance video from neighboring businesses to help identify the robber, Sands said.
