Shortly before midnight Sunday police were called by security to Town East Mall to the report of a robbery. When they arrived at the security office they made contact with one of 2 security officers that told them a man armed with a tazer entered the mall and demanded money. 

The woman told officers that an unknown man threatened the two and tazed the other officer and demanded money.

One of the officers attempted to call 911 on a cell phone, but the suspect stole the phone and left the mall.

Officer Charlie Davidson says the suspect is described as a black male in his 20's or 30's, 5 foot 8 inches tall.

Anyone with any information is asked to call detectives at 268-4407 or Crimestoppers at 267-2111. You can leave an anonymous tip there that could lead to a cash reward.
