Police are searching for a man who robbed the manager of a Wal-Mart in east Fort Worth on Thursday morning while disguised in a ski mask and armed with a Taser-type weapon.

The robbery occurred about 7 a.m. at the Wal-Mart at 6500 Meadowbrook Drive.

Witnesses told police that the suspect — described as a thin black man wearing a red ski mask and dressed in black clothing — walked up behind the store’s manager as the man carried the store’s payroll bag toward an office area. The robber demanded the manager give him the bag, pointing a Taser-type weapon at him.
