Kansas City police are looking for a man who robbed a Church’s Chicken restaurant Tuesday night armed with a samurai sword.

The man demanded money from the cash register at the store at 55th Street and Prospect Avenue just before 10 p.m. He then left in a brown, two-toned Chevrolet pickup truck, possibly a 1980s model.

Police said the man was described as having light black skin, being 5 feet 4 inches to 5 feet 5 inches tall, weighing 120-130 pounds and wearing a dark gray or black hoodie and jeans.
