KANSAS CITY, MO (KCTV) -

It only took a few minutes for a man to rob the cashier at an area Family Dollar, but it seemed like a lifetime for the mother who witnessed the crime.

The witness was inside the store at East 31st Street and Prospect Avenue buying Halloween costumes for her daughter and her brother when the robber came into the store.

"My heart started pounding," she said. "He came up and actually pushed over the register. He actually put the gun in and demanded money.

Surveillance video shows the crook nudge the woman's daughter out of the way as he moved closer to the register.

The mother was able to casually maneuver the children out of the store, follow behind them and call the police. She then went back to the store after police arrived to give them a description of the robber.

No one was hurt, but the witness said the cashier was a nervous wreck after the robbery.

"She was like just shaking, both of us. It was very startling and very frightening for everyone," she said.

Police are still looking for the robber and urge anyone who knows who it is to call the TIPS Hotline at 816- 474-TIPS.
