FRANKLIN, KY (WBKO) -- Franklin Police say just before 10:00 p.m. Wednesday February 19, a man entered the MAPCO Express just off I-65, and demanded money.

Employees told police they were in the process of closing, when the man burst into the store, grabbed a female employee by the hair, and began screaming “Open the cash register!” Employees complied and the man left.

The man is described as a black male 5’8” to 5’10”, 150 – 180 pounds., with a thin build. He was last seen wearing a black, hooded sweat shirt, a purple camouflage bandanna over his face, blue jeans, and tennis shoes.
