Police are investigating after a man with a meat cleaver robbed a St. Joseph smoke shop Thursday afternoon.

According to Capt. Jeff Wilson with the St. Joseph Police Department, officers responded shortly before 2 p.m. Thursday to MSA Smoke Shop and Groceries at North Belt Highway and County Line Road.

Wilson said a white male reportedly went in and out of the store multiple times and the last time he entered with a meat cleaver and demanded money from the clerk. The man took money from the drawer and a couple items from the store and fled in an unknown direction.

Wilson said the man was reportedly wearing Carhartt style bib overalls and a black hoodie. No one was injured in the incident. There are no suspects at this time but detectives are investigating and reviewing surveillance footage.
